The All Done Box

Parker has a bad habit of throwing things.  Finished playing with a toy?  Huck it.  Done with that crayon.  Huck it.  Want Mom’s attention?  Pick up something and huck it.  Our solution to my kid’s budding career as a baseball pitcher?  The All Done Box.

Parker's all done box.

It’s nothing fancy.  Just a plastic box with the words ‘Parker’s All Done Box’ taped to it.

Boy, does it work though.

an 'all done' box

There’s not much that Parker hates more than, after hucking something, than having to walk over, pick it up and then walk it to the All Done Box.

Using an 'all done' box.  Special Needs

It’s always nice to find something that works.

Score one for the Mama.

Do you have a kid who loves to throw stuff?  How do you deal with the issue?

PS:  According to Parker’s teacher, throwing can be a form of meeting sensory issues, something we are discovering Parker is full of.  sigh.
