sorting spoons, which has greatly improved the quality of dinner at our house. So when I saw this idea from The Imagination Tree, I thought it might be a good one for our pre-dinner repertoire. I recently bought some pipe cleaners from the $1 section at target, and I used one of the colanders we already owned. I gave no explanation just put the stuff on the floor and she dove right in. She was very focused on getting the pipe cleaners into the hole. When she had gotten them all in she carefully took them out and started again. This was a great exercise for her fine motor skills and we had a delicious dinner!
