– Colossians 3:23
I taped a candy way up high on the wall. They tried to first knock it off with a number of items that wouldn’t reach. Then, Abby tried whacking at it with some clothes. It didn’t reach. They tried to stand on a couple things. Finally, they got out the stool and combined it with a longer stick to retrieve it.
Move the Feather
I placed masking tape about four feet apart on thee ground. Then, I placed a feather at one end and said they had to get the feather from one line to the next without using their hands. They figured out right away that they could blow it. I also showed them how they could use a piece of paper to fan it.
Fetch the Jelly Belly
The final task was to retrieve jelly bellies from some couscous that I had that had already expired. They could only use the tools I provided, and they could only touch the jelly belly with their hands if there was no other couscous around.
All of these fun tasks taught them how it often takes diligence to accomplish tasks. A bonus is that they used problem solving techniques, which really aids in their learning and development.
