After she put all of the leaves in the tennis ball container, I showed her how to put one at a time in a 2 liter bottle. I showed her how to push it down with just one finger at a time. She copied me exactly and was able to push the leaf in the bottle easily. After that she tried to use her thumb and a couple of fingers at a time. She wasn't as successful, but it was fun to watch her try different ways of doing things.
Check out those long fingernails! I felt like a bad mama when I saw how long her fingernails were in this picture...I have a hard time keeping them cut...they grow SO fast!
After she finished the activity, she put the leaves on her head and said "hat, hat." She puts EVERYTHING on her head and calls it a hat...love it!
