Lucy is most content when she is doing something studious. Today I pulled out two bowls, some large noodles (I thought about beans but she puts everything in her mouth) and a variety of spoons. First she moved one at a time with the measuring spoons then when that got too boring she switched to scooping them with her hands and ended by dumping a full bowl into the other full bowl. This lasted a full 25 minutes!
She was very serious and I honestly didn't know if she was old enough for this activity but apparently she is! She loved it! I'll be pulling out more put and take activities for her.
