Setting a large table can be over whelming for a young child. Try putting together a place setting on a tray using a Montessori placemat with outlines for cup or glass, plate, and silverware. You can add a cloth napkin too. Teach your child to fold the napkin by either sewing or marking lines for folding it.
“Let’s learn how to set the table.”
Introduce the the ” setting table activity tray” to your preschool child by carefully taking off the items from the tray and putting them back on the tray correctly. Let your child do the exercise next. This is one of the practical life experiences that children like to do many times.
The second step is to set the table with one or more table settings.
*You can purchase wooden trays at craft or thrift stores.
