Dropper Writing Letter M with LEGO • 🔠Language 101 🎥 Series 🎇

Today, we are practicing fine-motor skills while spelling using a dropper the letter "M" on a LEGO DUPLO board. This activity also has a sensorial dimension as Adrian has to follow precisely the color-scheme and the pattern that his sister drew for him as a template for the letter M.


 What you will need:

  • LEGO DUPLO board,
  • crayons and matching food coloring,
  • liquid droppers to practice fine-motor skills (buy a set of six here) – I like that you can take the silicone bulb off to dry the dropper so it does not collect mold,
  • white paper.


Following Julia's template, Adrian has to "write" letter M on a LEGO board using colored water and a dropper.
 “Education should no longer be mostly imparting knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentials.”— Dr. Maria Montessori.

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.” — Dr. Maria Montessori.
