Toddler Montessori Activity: Pens In A Bottle

I have recently started working with Little Bear (who is 14 months) on a few first Montessori Activities.

I really like this one: putting pens in a bottle. Of course, it'd be better if I had a glass bottle (that way I wouldn't have to hold the bottom of the bottle like I am in the picture). However, it's safer, at this point, to use plastic as he wants to empty out the pens himself.

I was pretty impressed with his ability to do this activity. I was also impressed at the amount of concentration he brought to it. It's definitely the kind of concentration I've read alot about in Montessori.
