Non-plastic tablewareWe found heavy restaurant-ware dishes at both thrift stores and restaurant supply stores. These are really thick, heavy dishes like in a diner. We also found simple Chinese teacups at the restaurant-supply store as well.
Additional ideas from our Waldorf teachers:
~ creamer pitchers so that the kids can practice pouring small amount of water themselves
~ have the children cut apple slices with cheese spreaders, on small wood cutting boards. I found these to work well for us at home.
There are also new glass dishes, but I have not tried them.
