Does your child have a difficult time transitioning from one activity to the next?
This “magical” xylophone is my secret to getting my kids to do what I want them to do! Some people like the 3 minute and 5-minute warnings but I find that it disrupts their play and thus they can get upset.
Instead, I softly start playing the xylophone which slowly lifts them out of their play. Then if they are still continuing to struggle I will say “you may play the xylophone on the way to the bathroom to wash your hands.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The key is not to let them use this at any other time otherwise it will lose its novelty. 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
