We’ve collected a few videos and pictures lately of things that happen in a typical day at Hilltop Children’s House
Sorting pompoms by color, transferring buttons from one bowl to another, matching noise cylinders by sound, setting up a prayer table for Advent… all typical occurrences here at Hilltop Children’s House.
There are still so many materials to acquire, but, as you can see, those we’ve been able to pull together so far have been great!
A few snippets for you:
Transferring buttons from one bowl to another and back again seems mundane… once you’re older. At this age it’s a cause for high concentration.
You must listen carefully to find the cylinders that sound the same when shaken. Eventually you organize them from loudest to softest, and back again.
Setting the Prayer Table
Many parts are needed. Prayer is a serious business. Setting the table is a big responsibility.
Moving cotton pompoms from a container to a sheet and setting them on their corresponding color, using a strawberry huller… this is relatively simple for a grownup with a large, strong hand and mastery of fine motor skills. Not so much for children.
