Self Help

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!
