There are two types of pouring activities. Pouring solid material and pouring water. These works are always presented on a tray and the objects should be placed in writing direction.
The introduced activities can of course be offered with various materials for pouring. I tried to rate them in their level of difficulty.
- Please note, that you should just put the right amount of rice or water in the container, to provide a control of error and the possibility to experience volume, especially if the contents are divided between more than one container.
- The pouring material should be conform with the age of the child and the developmental stage - if the child is still in the oral phase, pouring materials should be used that are safe. Or it can be seen as a sign that there might not be too much interest in pouring exerices but rather being eager to self pouring a cup of water to drink.
- To acknowledge the Montessori Principle of Isolation of quality, the materials for pouring should be homogenous - one single color. (unfortunately I had no undyed corn left for the photo)

Pouring with solid material you can find a video with an presentation on YouTube
Pouring exercises with water (to make the control of error easier the water can be coloured with food dye) You will find a video on how to present it on YouTube
Divide water with a funnel into two different bottles. Choose the smaller bottles in a way that the amount of water from the larger bottles fits exactly into the smaller ones.
