Sam likes to throw things. He loves basketball and baseball. He loves throwing rocks. He likes throwing the fallen leaves. We spend several hours each day honing these athletic skills. Sam also likes to throw everything else especially his dinner (and lunch and breakfast and snacks and everything that goes along with these meals) I've tried everything I can think of to break him of this wonderful habit, but nothing is working yet. Anyone have any good ideas?
Today, Sam decided he no longer wanted his yogurt and threw it across the room. He spent a few minutes in timeout while I cleaned up the floor and walls. I must have missed a spot,because awhile later I heard him singing the alphabet song and drawing on the window. Here is his finger paint (or rather yogurt) art. Now I am all for encouraging creativity through art, but I would prefer other mediums at the moment.
