Tommy learned to use the hand sanitizer when he was about 18 months. But teaching to watch his hands would be challenging because he cannot reach the sink. Last weekend, Tommy climbed my steep stool while he was exploring around. I realized if he could climbed my step stool, he could wash his hands and he would be able to improve his balance and his gross motor skills at the same time. Therefore, he is learning to watch his hands. After, we help him to watch his hands, he likes to dry his hands with paper towel. He truly enjoys it!
"The sky is the limit"
Tommy washes his hand for the first time
Taking this picture wasn't easy. I was so afraid
he could fall. I could not concentrate to take the photos
of the process of him climbing; even although, my
husband was watching him. I just took the beginning and the end.
