Twice now we have accidentally taken toy kitchen tongs to the playground with us and twice now they have been fought over at the playground by friends. And today, when I brought out these science tweezers, my kids both fought over them.
Apparently tweezers and tongs are awesome tools in our kids eyes. Let’s put that love of tongs to good use!
We will be working on fine motor skills as we stuff our snowman.
