Eating Grapes: A Learning Activity

Today's tip revolves around snack prep. If you are feeding your kiddos grapes and they are past the age of chocking, take a scissors and cut the grapes stems into segments.

The children will have to hold the stem with one hand and pull the grapes off the stem with the other. That gives them the opportunity to work both hands together and works on fine motor skills in a very practical way. It also helps them build self help skills. Who would think that something like eating grapes can be a learning activity??
