Something we have been practicing with my son lately is patience. As we were waiting for lunch to be ready, he needed a little activity to occupy him. All I could see around me at the time were a strainer and toothpicks that he had scattered all over the table. Hence this activity.
I showed him that he could make the toothpicks disappear by putting them through the strainer hole. Oh, it was quite an activity! Through this activity, he learned:
- to focus or concentrate
- to be patient
- to pinch
- to aim
- coordination between two hands
- fine motor skills
- sense of and celebrate accomplishments
Before we knew it, it was lunch time. He was sooo happy each time he was able to push through. He would smile from ear to ear and/or clap. And we had an easier cleanup with the toothpicks because they were not scattered all over the table but all under the strainer yippeee!
