- Lia loved moving them from one container to the other
- I named the colors and the sizes for her (That's a small ball, it is red.)
- I named the feeling (Is it soft? Yes it is soft!). She was really intrigued.
- She touched them
- Tasted them
- I tickled her with them.
- She ended up spreading them all over her worktop and finally they finished on the floor.
She had a great time and it also gave Emma and I an opportunity to make play-doh cookies and cakes together! Emma came up with most delicious looking creations!
On top of it all, we managed to find a derivative activity for Lia! Once all the pompoms were on the floor she got to place the play-doh containers back in their box! Another activity she loved and couldn't wait for the next available container so that she could put it in its place. We ended up taking them all out so that she could put them back again.
I'm happy with this development, Lia is growing and it gives me hope that things will change soon, the kids will be able to play together harmoniously...... well at least some of the time.
