Sometimes you pin stuffs on Pintercrack and you are like "oh my freaking gawd, that is brilliant! I will so do that!" even when you can see that it isn't exactly in your typical repertuar. Case in point, chore sticks.
|wow, just wow|
|Boredom Jars are awesome too!|
Chore sticks be a great plan den mon because you have to physically move them, which (teacher moment!) activates a different section of the brain and can help stimulate his tactile mind. Helps him remember, makes him more into the idea, and gives him a sense of success when he sees the stack of "done" sticks. So I found this one here that I thought was totally awesomesauce.
|seriously, it is awesome|
|just a sample of a few sticks|
So after all of that, I decided to shelf this one for the moment. To be honest, I have images of paint and Sharpie marker running through my lazy head, and I am okay with that. So we shall return to this project. Soon.
I also needed to come up with a different storage system because I didn't have this spiffy cup.
All the alternative containers I saw on Pintercrack were adorably done, but am I the only one who thinks having my kids routinely touch glass mason jars when they are trying to hurry through a task is a great way to make a faboosh and dangerous mess somewhere down the road? But I already have that idear covered, so I will share that with you when I do the project and have the final reveal.
