Practical Life VII - Transferring beads with tweezers

I decided to continue the "Montessori Practical Life Exercises" series which I've started last year. 

As a reminder, previous exercises included the following:
 Today let me present to you an exercise called

Transferring beads with tweezers.

  • small beads in a small container
  • tweezers
  • rubber soap pad
  • tray
The objective of this exercise is to transfer all the beads onto the soap pad using tweezers.
This exercise helps to strengthen the muscles in the child's hand (needed in developing a proper pencil grasp) as squeezing the tweezers requires some strength. Transferring the beads requires also precise movement and helps in hand-eye coordination.
