"C" likes to be given challenging little activities
and it's handy to have a few tricks up my sleeve
(like this one) when I'm trying to get something
done like get dinner on the table before bedtime!
I set her up in her Learning Tower
(greatest thing ever!)
at the kitchen counter with a work tray.
I set out chunky Jingle Bells (from the Dollar Tree)
Sparkly Pipe Cleaners
and two empty glass Cheese Shaker things.
First she laced each bell onto a pipe cleaner
(this was tricky for both of us!)
Then, she poked one end of the pipe cleaner into
a hole in the cheese shaker lid.
Then, she decided to poke the other end
of each pipe cleaner into another hole.
It held her interest and
was really good for her little
Why can't three year olds
ever do natural smiles for the camera?
It's always the forced smile
with Mad-Scientist eyes!!
Her finished project!
Good job kiddo,
you practiced your fine motor skills
and momma got the dishwasher unloaded
and dinner started!
