I love highchairs.
Of course, they are the best place to feed a child, but for the same reason they are a wonderful place to tear paper, look at a book, scribble, count crayons, play with a toy, finger paint with pudding or paint, play with clay and stack blocks!
Supported upright position, upper body control, freedom of movement and focus-
Pieces stay contained on the tray, crayons don't roll to the floor, little brothers can't reach your stuff and distractions seem to disappear.
When a highchair is pulled up to a kitchen table to make a bigger work space, the beginner's attention is still centered!
Stay tuned for more ways to use this glorious piece of furniture. Tell me, what activities do you use your highchair for?
