Last night A asked for some cheerios before bed. I told her she needed to clean up the small pieces of play dough off her table. I sat at my laptop for a minute or two, to let her start then I was going to go help her.
We bought her a second-hand play kitchen about a year ago. I have added things to it since getting it, including a small hand broom and dust pan.
Needless to say, I didn’t have to help her clean up the playdough. Dust pan in hand her table was just about clean.
I am very proud that she saw a problem and found a way to clean it up quickly, without any help from us.
