Hands off.

October 1, 2019


Last year I had a little boy who had some …. habits that were…..trying…. (trying to be professional here) and required that I make some modifications around the room. I took the doors off the play kitchen so he wouldn’t slam them over and over – y’know, stuff like that. He would also play with the sink faucet handles and shake the actual faucet.

This year, we noticed that the current group would hold onto the faucet while reaching for the soap. That faucet wasn’t going to be long for this world if that went on, so I’ve zip-tied a tactile reminder to it.

We’ll see how this works……
