Original Post: Sugar and Spice
I originally pinned this activity to do with the kids on a rainy day. More specific: A rainy day when daddy was at work, my son was sleeping and I just had my daughter to entertain. Well, that was kind of how it all started. My husband left for work and I was left with two crying kids that wanted him to stay. My son was soon distracted by a book but my daughter needed to do SOMETHING. So I grabbed some playdough, a raw spaghetti and some cheerios and let her have some fun.
She was a pro at it, which I mostly expected. So when my son came in, I thought I would let him have a try. Mostly expecting HIM to eat all the cheerios. But I was happily surprised when he was able to do it! He focused, he tried, he failed and he succeeded.
What a great activity! It is one of those activities that would keep my little guy busy for a LONG time - my daughter - not so much. It was perfect for my 21 month old and I want to do it again and again with him!
