Practical life activities are activities of everyday life - from washing our hands, to preparing a snack, tying your shoes or even wiping a table. These activities gives your child a sense of being and belonging and at the same time, allows them to learn culture and what its like to be human.
Practical life activities need to be based on reality. This means that we need to provide real tools, although safe tools for the child to work with. Think knives that can actually cut, but are rounded at the ends. They also need to be child-sized so that the child can participate in the activity without the feeling of frustration at the size.
At the start, the tasks are difficult as there may be lots of steps. But eventually, your child will gain the skills and confidence to perform the task all by themselves.
At Malaysia Toys, we believe in helping your child gain the skills they need with the right tools.
