This started out with S1 eating a carrot like a beaver and creating a tree, then attempting to balance cheerios as a star on top, and then we just went with it... breaking toothpicks and decorating his "Christmas Tree" for Santa and the Reindeer. He is so proud of his creation. And I am proud of him. (It's now in the freezer and I will surprise him with it on Christmas Eve.)
That took quite the imagination, and was a wonderful fine motor activity. He played with this for over an hour and developed a beautiful storyline in the process. Thank you for this memory, bud, I love you!
