Pasting is usually on our art shelves. Otis hasn't been choosing the activity so I reassessed the pasting tray and made a few changes.
First I switched from a medium sized tray to a small tray. I feel Otis is more comfortable carrying the smaller trays especially when they are heavy. His pasting tray had a large glass jar for paste. He couldn't independently open the jar (which is what I wanted at the time) and the jar was heavy. I switched the paste to a small jar with a screw top lid which he can open independently. He cannot fully and tightly close the lid but that's ok. The tray had large coloured randomly cut out shapes for pasting. I replaced them with smaller flying insect images. As it happens whenever you update a tray - it interests the child immediately. A change, an update, a reassessment is good!
