TODAY'S PLAY: Use mealtime as a canvas for creativity and exploring different shapes.
Getting your kid to the dinner table can be a tough task. Letting them know they'll get to play with their food to make shapes might make that task easier. No matter what is for dinner your child will come up with a way to turn it into a shape whether it is ripping a piece of bread to look like a triangle or moving carrots into a square or grouping peas into a circle.
Let your child know they can use their plate or bowl as a canvas and ask them to make shapes with their food. If they've mastered circles, squares, triangles, and rectangles introduce new shapes. Ask them to make up their own shapes or even create a pattern with the entire family!
