Sticky Fingers


Materials

  • Flat piece of wood
  • Glue gun
  • Velcro
  • Small figures of animals, dinosaurs, cowboys, and so on

Directions

  1. Glue Velcro onto a flat piece of wood (use a piece that will fit on the tray of your child's highchair).
  2. Glue pieces of Velcro onto the bottom of small figures that your child likes to play with.
  3. She may amuse herself for quite a while sticking and unsticking these figures on the piece of wood.
  4. This technique could also help older children avoid frustration when scenes they are trying to set up keep falling over.
