I started out by calling them to the table and left it totally open ended.
Beansie thought it was a snack...
while Busy started out in a one demential mind frame.
Then he tried to see how many toothpicks he could stick
into one side of a grape.
Busy made an "enclosure"
Then she put a giraffe in it!
She also made an airplane
and a star.
And Beansie made a "comet with a fire tail and a water tail."
This activity was engaging for seriously about 30 minutes! The possibilities are endless and it's great fine motor practice. And clean up is a breeze! You simply eat the grapes and use the toothpicks as swards! ;)
