When the boys got their hair cut a few months ago it was SO bittersweet for me because they looked like such big boys. I must have looked quite sad because the hair dresser handed me a BUNCH of samples that were Scotch re-stickable squares in an attempt to cheer me up. It totally worked. I love free samples.
I took it as a sign that I needed to create the chart.
- First, I drew all of the fruits and vegetables.
- And they sat and sat on my dresser. Until Joy was over and offered to cut out them out for me while Isla slept on her. woohoo!
- The pile sat again.
- My sister in law, Abby, was over and I asked her to cut the pre-cut Scotch squares into fours. Then I was able to stick all of the fruit and veggie shapes to the chart and hang both charts.
- I used double sided-tape once because I couldn't find the re-stickable squares it doesn't work well. It's a huge pain
I was not sure how successful it would be but it's going really well. Both boys actually try new fruits and veggies just so they can update their chart.
I don't have a difficut time getting Mason or Jaxon to eat adequate servings of fruits and veggies each day or try new things to eat. But Brant wouldn't even snif a vegtable. He was always great at eating fruit but since having the chart he has tried new fruits and veggies.
WARNING: THESE PICS MAY OFFEND THOSE WHO CAN ACTUALLY DRAW
