Penguin Bowling

If any of you know Michael, he likes to throw things. Anything. And he was getting more and more powerful with every throw. So, for Christmas we thought it would be a good idea to find some items that would allow him to throw--but with direction, aim, and a reason.

The Mahelona's surprised Michael with a mini basketball hoop. I have taught Michael when I say, "Block!" to raise his arms. However, he hates it when I "block" him while he is shooting, even if I'm all the way across the room. I'm just that good at blocking him, I guess.One of my new favorites (and his too) is a penguin bowling set. There are 6 plushy stand-up penguins, and a light ball that has entertained Michael very much! Overall, I think these toys were great choices and definitely age appropriate. Now, he also understands it's okay and continues to be fun to throw balls, but knows that he will go to timeout if he throws other objects across the room.
