We started by having Bristel demonstrate how to catch a Fishy.
Trevy then had his turn; however, it is impossible to snap pictures without an extra set of hands. Mine are busy Hand Over Handing with him.
I originally had just one staple per Fishy. It worked for the peer model. In fact, she was a Fishy catching shark.
Trevy...not so much.
I quickly realized it was too challenging for his current fine motor skills (20-24 months). So I immediately improvised and added four staples to each fish.
I think this would have given him more success. And more success would have prompted a longer (than 60 seconds) attention span. However, between the failed first attempt and the time it took to improvise...
Trevy ghosted outta the room onto Daddy's (Sunday napping) lap. Where he flashed me cheeky grins without budging every time I asked him to come try again.
maybe you'll have more luck?!
