solving problems...

 

 

When I was at play street a few days ago I saw this and had to take a picture.  Each house at play street has one high chair…not a problem for most little mommies with one baby…but this mommy had triplets.  She had a real problem and needed to find a solution.  I could see the wheels turning inside this little one’s mind and I loved her ‘out of the box’ solution!

Problem solving is just one of the skills little ones can learn through creative play.  It can be very hard, but try to resist giving them ‘adult rules’ (that isn’t what an ironing board is for), solutions or answers too quickly.  Often times, we can learn from them.
