Montessori - Practical LIfe - Dry Scooping

T's done a bit of baking with me and totally enjoys scooping , pouring the flour / milk / etc... from one container to another. So now I have her a little jar (those Avent cups are so convenient for this) of beans and she has a tiny spoon that she uses to scoop the beans from one cup to another. Sometimes she does make a mess, but I will make a game with her to see who can pick up the most beans from the floor / table. It's also a good counting game to count the beans as you pick them up.
