Today is Sunday and our dad is at home so less activities with mom :)
I bought an Italian seasonings jar last week from a thrift store for this activity. The size of the holes are just perfect for us. I also felt so lucky to find a bear shape jar for Leo to play with.
For the activity I took 10 spaghetti and divided each into 3 pieces so that they were short enough to fit horizontally into the jar. I gave him the spaghetti and he exactly knew what to do because we’d been doing similar activities with pipe cleaners and vegetable strainer. Leo loved putting them inside the jar and then putting the hat back on the bear that is actually the lid. I do this activity for the development of hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. But it is also good for developing a longer attention span.
