Stand up Sticks
Stand your Pick-up Sticks in a dollop of mashed sweet potato as a motor planning challenge for little fingers and hands. Firstly, steam a portion of sweet potato and mash it to a smooth but pliable consistency and pop a dollop on a plate. Next, model sticking the organic sweet potato pick-up stick into the mash so that it stands upright on its own. Lastly, provide another pick-up stick to your mini-mover to see if they imitate your play. During this process you are helping your baby’s little fingers learn the weight sensation of the pick-up stick, which prepares your baby for self-feeding tasks.
