I bought the jack o'lantern cup from The Dollar General. E puts the toothpicks into the straw one at a time.
This work teaches concentration and attention to detail, and it is good practice for developing her fine motor skills.
She preferred to pick up a bunch of the toothpicks at one time, so I prompted her to pick up just one at a time. She's looking into the straw to see the toothpicks. This was a fun and simple work...the best kind!
