There was so much excitement you would have wished to be a kid again to participate in this frenzy of delight!
All you need to do is hang a basketball hoop, (i made it with a foam piece, should be light in weight to be able to stick it), fill the tub with water (at desirable temperature), load it with colorful balls and let the energy flow!
Amazed by his concentration and fine motor skills as if he always played basketball, I showed admiration which encouraged him and made him keen not to miss any shot!
Such games are not just for finer motor skills but also to develop gifts! My treasure isn’t only a beautiful artist, he is a sportsman as well! Now Papa Antoun please rest assured, Nady likes sports too 🙂
He got so excited to dunk as well!
We guess Nady is ambidextrous with ability to use both hands at equal ease.
Fun game in the bathtub with lots of energy, skills and laughter. Watch this video:

This Fun play was totally inspired by my son. Since he was a baby he shows interest in straws, he likes to pull it out of my drink, then put it back. Every time we are in a restaurant we order extra straws for him to play so i can save my drink 🙂
To encourage his interest and his motor skills, i got a bunch of colored straws (to add more fun to the play) to play with.
He got so excited when he saw the quantity!
But this time we are not inserting the straws in a cup, we are poking them in a homemade playdough. Click here for the safe homemade playdough recipe that i posted earlier.
He started by sticking the straws one by one. The sculpture started to shape out.
He had a good time building and rebuilding the sculptures. Every time i think it’s over, he removes the straws and starts again!
Constructive play begins in middle to late toddlerhood, when the child becomes motivated to combine and arrange objects to construct something new. At this age there is no rules for the play, you can show your kid how to play, but he always has his own way. Conventional toys are very interesting, but kids like to use items in the house to discover the environment around them. You see kids playing with tupperwares, lids, spoons… Sometimes simple things at home can be instructive and entertaining. With these simple straws we played for more than an hour and he was extremely happy and entertained!
And here is Nady’s beautiful straws sculpture. Isn’t it beautiful?
