We’ve started giving Ben some utensils while we eat. He seems to enjoy playing with them, and everything I’ve read says kids will want to emulate their parents and use silverware. He’s played with them a few times, but it hasn’t been something we’ve worked on until recently. He seems pleased to have his own spoon at dinner, but getting it to actually work is a bit of a challenge. If you think about it, scooping something onto a spoon and getting it to your mouth does take some skill, so I think he does pretty well with his explorations. He has a pretty good system going. He dips the spoon into the food container and pulls it out. Then he shoves his other hand into the container, grabs a handful of food, and shoves it into his mouth. Very effective.
|Step 1: Dip the spoon.|
|Step 2: Grab food with the other hand.|
|Step 3: Shove it in your face.|
