Orange 2

Today I decided to extend the steps to teach Calder to eat orange independently. I instructed him to put a plate (for orange peels) and a bowl (for peeled orange) on the dining table. Taught him to wash (must rub) the orange and the tricky part - to slit the orange skin using the plastic ring. When I found him making random slits on the orange skin, I took a pen and drew lines for him. He was not able to cut along the lines accurately but that's ok. It just meant more strenuous peeling. At one point, Calder rubbed his right eye with his juice-stained fingers and had to he rescued with a wipe of wet towel. After eating the orange, Calder rinsed the plate, bowl and plastic ring, and put them back. Voila!
