While Mustang was working on something else, I brought out our new treasure. Charger, Mini Cooper and I explored the new tower together. I let them touch it and take it apart, and try to put it together as they wanted to.
They looked over it for a little bit and then Mini Cooper wanted to do something else. So, I went ahead and presented the tower properly to Charger.
He had to rearrange a few blocks here and there, but overall he did very well with the tower. I think he is really into his sensory period, and he loves puzzles and anything that 'fits' together, so he really enjoyed this work.
Charger did well enough that I went ahead and pulled out the pink tower cards I had printed from Montessori Print Shop. As I first laid out the cards he thought 'paper work' and quickly told me he wasnt interested. So I matched the first little cube and asked if he could find the match for the second. Now it was a puzzle, game, and challenge all in one and he was excited. He happily matched the rest of the cubes to their cards. I will have to get him some extension cards to hold his interest.
So far it is certainly a hit. I hope that Charger tries the Pink Tower work at least a few times on his own. I know that Mustang is excited to give it a try as well.
And if you are wondering, I ordered our pink tower from Kid Advance. I was very pleased with my product.
