Bottles and Lids

Di Hodges

This activity will help develop your children’s powers of prediction as they guess which lid fits which bottle. A good way to develop the muscles in their hands and fingers also.

What you need:

  • Bottles of different shapes and sizes with screw top lids

What you do

Put out a selection of jars (at least 10) with different sized lids. See if your children can find all the correct lids for the jars and screw them on.

Later, they might like to time themselves with an egg timer to see how fast they can do it.

They could also put the jars in order from the smallest lid to the largest. Remind your children to take great care with glass bottles.
