This is a follow up entry on my ‘Looking at a way to combine conversation with artsy-kids?‘ which looked at at my son using his drawing skills to as assist with his conversational skills.
We have assembled the coffee machine and he is our appointed barista whenever we want a cup of Dolce Gusto coffee. Is it easy to use? Read on and find out…
This machine is really easy to use and I think it is a good way to get our children to help around the house. As mentioned, we want our kids to be independent and everyday things in the house can actually be used to teach them independence, while building on their motor skills and throwing in some occupational therapy skills.
We are still teaching C to carry the mugs and cups on his own to the dining table. He is able to hold the water cup now with three-quarter filled water with a few accidents once in a while. Once he is more confident, and do not have ‘rovering’ eyes which always look left and right instead of straight ahead, we will start to train with the coffee mugs.
Have a cuppa! Have an ‘aromatic’ week ahead!
A, B & C 🙂
