Orange Juice Squeezing

Another yummy fine motor exercise, orange juice squeezing is out on our shelves. After the child washes their hands, they take a tray to the table. Then they bring over half of an orange. We teach them to squeeze the orange while pushing down and twisting. These oranges have seeds in them which is actually quite good as the children can see the seeds sticking in the top.
After the juicing is done, we pour it into a cup. Sometimes this needs a little adult assistance.
Enjoy the freshly squeezed orange juice!
