Mail Time

child develop independence by accomplishing small task daily

Getting the mail was one task this little guy remember to do everyday. He enjoyed walking out with the key to open and close the mailbox on his own. This is one way we indirectly showed him, how to do something independently in his everyday life. He also learned how to coordinate his hands to help him open and close the box while handling the mail. So cute to wacth! 

After he mastered getting the mail on his own we :

- Placed the mail key in a accessible place for him to find it when he needs it.

- Set appropriate responsibility and expected him put the mail key in its place.

- Had him sort the mail (envelopes on onside side and newspapers on the other).
