With K, playtime is different from other kids. If we want her to engage in some play, we had to assist her. For example, play cooking while she is lying down will require us to hold her hands to move through the motions of say stir frying a toy chicken or some sorts.
Whenever possible, we always try to K to engage playtime with her own strength.
Since we loaned the tumble forms sitter, we usually just have her sitting up, watching the TV or maybe tasting some of the puree we feed her.
Last weekend, grandma bought her a toy drum set after her cousin destroyed hers. We decided to work the sitter with the sling frame while letting play her new drums.
The frames sits over her in the sitter, with the slings supporting her upper limbs from the frame. She gets to swing her arms on her own to bang the drums.
Her grip is weak as she drops her drum stick after swinging it a few times. Had to leverage on the sling to support it.
While sitting up, this little miss busybody also gets to look at our neighbours next block (Full length windows are great!) Her eyes are ever so busy.
She sits up at 45-60 degree angle for about 40 minutes, dropping the angle once to let her clear her secretion when she didn’t manage it too well.
When the park downstairs is ready, she can sit up, peer down to look at the activities going on down there if she isn’t already there.
