Breakfast by himself

Most mornings, our breakfast table looks like this.

Finn loves being able to add the toppings to his porridge all by himself. 

Exercising his hand muscles while his porridge cools down...

Practising his transferring skills...

Making a choice between raisins, cranberries, flaked almonds, oat bran, sunflower seeds... of all of them at once!
Grace and courtesy are also part of the game as he learns to serve others too.

There is no better practical life activity than the one that feeds you.


  1. Oh, Elise would love this! Although I don't think she would be quite as tidy as Finn... not yet, at least! :) What a great idea offer a variety of toppings, too. Thanks for sharing. So glad you're back!

  2. Thanks for your comment, Anne! It's less about being tidy than enjoying the process. You could give it a go!

  3. I love this little set up! Thank you for the inspiration!

  4. Hi, Elsa! I'm so glad to have found your blog. I'm a Montessori teacher, soon to become a mother, and I'm on the look out for Montessori homes like Anne's and Deb's! I love what you did here! Must add to my to-do list for the future! :)

    1. Hi Mars, thank you for introducing yourself! It's lovely to get to know my readers. I remember stumbling upon your blog a few times actually :) How exciting that you are having a baby! When is it due? All the best!

  5. Hi, Elsa! We're due end of July! End of this month, we'll find out if we're having a boy or a girl! :-)

  6. This is really lovely! What a wonderful morning ritual. Thank you for sharing!
