Mackenzie Peels a Banana By Herself

Thursday, April 12th, 2012 10:58 pm | By Stephanie Woo

It’s a challenge for children at this age to work with both hands at the same time. Peeling a banana is an excellent way to let them practice holding with one hand and peeling with another. And there’s a delicious reward at the end of it! Even though the real reward for the child is the act of peeling itself, it’s reassuring for Moms to know that your kids can soon reach for a wholesome and nutritious snack anytime they want!

  1. That is such an amazing video. I am constantly surprised at what children are capable of accomplishing given the right environment. Thanks for sharing this.

  3. This is… wonderful. It's gorgeous to see you all (or hear you, M), and it continually blows me away how you're creating situations for the girls to grow and how capable and involved they are when given the chance to be. There are so many levels where this is fantastic, from the development of their motor skills to the innate sense of self empowerment this is building, learning how to take care of themselves, how fun and creative it is for them, their senses of self-value as contributing, capable members of the family…that's just the start. It's beautiful. Thank you for sharing.
