All that gorgeous fruit from the Avalanche Fruit stand was just asking to be used in other ways. One of the ways we played with it was sorting by colour on the light table.
- Fruit from the Avalanche Fruit Stand
- Easy Grip Tweezers
- First Look Light Table coloured (paper to match the fruit)
Daisy instantly decided on her method. She started picking out the blackberries nearest to her and putting them on the purple paper.
Rose watched Daisy for a few seconds and then got to work on her oranges, again choosing to work on one type of fruit at a time.
Both flowers working away happily.
Rose’s hand was struggling to lift with the tweezers and she was about to drop the tweezers when I asked if her hand was tired.
A response of ‘yes’ stimulated a mini-lesson from Daisy on how to use the tweezers. She explained patiently how to place her thumb on one side and two fingers on the other. Very cute.
