David throws everything. So I thought I should get a game where throwing is appropriate.
I purchased a Toss-Across game.
I had to assemble the entire game complete with putting on the stickers for the Xs and Os. ( Anyone who knows me,knows I'm not good with stickers)
I did a good job with the stickers. They are all where they are supposed to be. Yay me!
I presented the game to David. The boy who throws everything.
He wanted to turn the pieces to make all the Xs and Os appear. I told him that was cheating.
I had my husband prompt David while I threw my first bean bag at the Toss Across frame. I showed David how to throw the bean bag at the frame to make the Xs and Os appear.
It took a lot of prompting to get David- the boy who throws everything- to throw his bean bag at the game frame.
Mommy- David, throw bean(with full prompt)
(David wouldn't release the bean bag)
Mommy- David throw bean (x3 until he FINALLY released the bean bag)
It went on like this for a while. David was able to throw the bean bag at the game frame on command. However, he was much more interested in throwing his bean bag ANYWHERE than at the game frame.
