So, after my blood pressure went down, around noon, I decided there had to be a way to positively reward her for doing what she's supposed to do, while also not having me being the attention giver (since that's an impossibility at the moment).
|Like I said, I used scraps.|
Scraps for the smaller pictures and Bus
1 sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 cardstock, folded like a taco and cut in two
Glue (Zip Dry is preferred)
2) Draw simple pictures of those objects, cut them out and glue them to one side of the cardstock. Make sure the pictures are approximately the same size as 1/4 of the paper.
3) Draw/cut out a giant school bus (which is the goal for us in the morning-- what's yours?) and glue it to the other side of the puzzle.
4) Cut the pieces into 4.
Here's hoping she gets up and finds it exciting to flip each card over as she completes a task. Like playing, but much more productive.
Here's hoping. :)
Let me know if you try this and how it works out!
