At 19 months, Ayra still isn’t eating much and at meal time, she likes to play with her food instead of eating them. To help teach her to scoop things up and feed herself, I bought some “tools” from Daiso and Spotlight and setup a play activity for Ayra.
She picks up the skill very quickly, and can scoop with both hands! After each successful scoop, she’ll put the scoops down and clap her hands with me.
She does it for a good 10 minutes and then get tired of scooping. She then started throwing the beads out all over the mat!
This weekend, I’ll have to try to correct the way she holds the scoop. Hopefully she’ll still be interested to do the scooping with me.
