Today we worked on motor skills. Jack had to feed the frog! I used an old Parmesan cheese container, drew a face and grabbed some craft balls we had on hand.
He loved it! He practiced putting the balls through the whole and even added opening and closing the "mouth" each time.
He got silly and said the frog was eating his fingers! This is a sign of success! When a child takes a skill building activity and expands the play creating a game and getting "lost" in play, that is when you know learning is happening.
Big brother even wanted a turn! This is the definition of Structured Play! They are learning through play. You take a little for thought preparing a skill building activity and let them go from there!
