The boys really wanted their boxes this morning – amazing how quickly they jump into a new ‘routine’.
Today I used pasta and pipecleaners (so you can thread the pasta onto the pipecleaners).
I thought they would reject them because there are no actual toys included, but I was astonished at how involved DS1 was with this activity. He really loved it, and his concentration this morning was fantastic – way better than when I try to engage him in this sort of thing in the afternoon. I think his brain is better at detailed activity in the morning, which tends to be when I am getting things done, so perhaps I should rethink our days a little.
Ah well. He had fun.
And at least it was easier to pack away for next time than the rice 🙂
