This activity assists in improving the child’s functional performance with snack preparation and encourages self-feeding.
This activity requires adult supervision and assistance. You can use any fruit the child likes, but for this example, we are going to use a banana.
Pour 4 ounces of milk into the mixing bowl and add one envelope of pudding (any flavor). Depending on the child’s age and abilities, this step may require an adult maximal assistance.
Using the spoon, have the child stir the milk and pudding mix vigorously until it thickens. Allow the child to peel the banana and if can do so independently. Assist the child in slicing the banana.
In a bowl, show the child how to layer the ingredients, placing the pudding first, then the banana slices, and then the wafers. Have the child follow this step as many times as you wish. For the last layer of wafers, have the child crumble the wafers on the top.
