Our snack station is really a hit with the kids. They are learning great self-help skills like pouring, cutting their own food and spreading things like nut butters & honey (with dull plastic knives of course).
"I'm not allowed to do this at my house!"
I hear this a lot! Messes are a certainty, but letting kids do these things for themselves doesn't just help them practice and learn important skills- it boosts their confidence and self-esteem!
It's important for kids to learn how to clean-up their messes, like spills, too. As they practice they will get better and better at it!
What we had for snack station today. Yum!
