First, I gathered my supplies: pipe cleaners, a colander, a spool, and a plastic container with holes drilled into the bottom.
Then, I modeled how to put the pipe cleaners into the holes. I tried to show my son how much fun this would be.
Then, I allowed my son to explore the items.
Finally, he put all of the pipe cleaners inside the colander and put a car on top.
I guess this wasn’t something that interested my son, so I will put it away for now and try again another time.
Have you ever seen an idea on a blog and thought it looked like it would be great to try? Then, when you did try it with your child things didn’t go as you had hoped? Obviously, it has happened to me. 🙂
