Playing with oatmeal

One thing Gideon always likes to do after a meal is play with what's leftover on his plate...transferring it to the table or a bowl and back onto his plate. after supper today, we gave him some oatmeal and some scoops and just let him have fun. It was messy, but he sat for a long time playing. I plan on making him (and Stella) a sensory box with colored rice (like on pinterest), and I'm hoping that will be a fun activity for them while ole is in Taiwan next month. And a note on the strainer on Stella's head: every time she helps unload the dishwasher, she sees it and yells 'hat!!' and then wears it for a while. So then back in the dishwasher it's on a permanent rotation:).
