milestone: she can use chopsticks

so, it turns out that she can use chopsticks! i wonder where did she learn it? i mean, she’s been using the chopsticks helper once in a while, but i thought that thing doesn’t do much in teaching kids to use chopsticks. i guess i was wrong.

last night, we were eating noodles as usual, and she was using her chopsticks helper. halfway through dinner, she said to her dad, “these chopsticks are boring. can i borrow yours?” and started using ari’s chopsticks to eat her noodles and picked up small meat pieces. ari and i both looked and giving each other a did-you-teach-her-that look.

so, yeah. maybe that chopsticks helper thing really does work after all.

Yay!! chopsticks are used for long for training fine motor skills…just for your information, the very expert chopsticks user train since they are very young around 3 (READ:THREE). If you can hold a grease marbles using chopsticks then you pass the test. Bravo Aina..keep up the good work and use that fine motor skill of yours…:)))

Oopss me again, forgot something. I used this eating using chopsticks method to train my Montessori classrooms around the world. Children find it very amusing, entertaining and challenging…it is categorized as practical life yet preparation for writing technique. Enjoy ! Xie xie…
