A tray with small glasses of water was kept ready. Children took the tray carefully and served water to everybody. They learnt to balance the tray carefully and not spill the water. They learned that it was polite to ask questions using courtesy words: “Would you like to have water?” The child who accepted the glass was encouraged to say “Thank you.”

As the children picked up the glass of water, they were encouraged to look into the glass and make sure that the water was clean. It was explained through the activity that if the water was not clean, they should change the glass.

This activity helped children to refine their gross motor skills and they also learnt about manners and etiquette to be followed with friends and guests.

Children were thrilled to conduct this activity and looked forward to repeating it everyday.
