scarce ly seems a toy at all Yet hammers appeal to the little child for several reasons They are bona fide tools which even the Olympian adult finds necessary They are so made that little hands can grasp them readily They suggest large swinging movements which the child enjoys They make a great deal of noise The process of actually hammering nails into a block of wood challenges him by its initial difficulty and thrills him with the sense of power that comes with achievement But hammers certainly are dan gerous A destructive child who has been given a hammer will light out in all directions regardless of who or what is in the way Even if he 13 only awkward he can hurt himself and inflict a good deal of damage Are hammers then a good sort of toy to put into the hands of a child three or under They are They merely require our careful supervi sion in the early stages of their use The destructive child needs to learn that whenever he uses his hammer for other than legitimate purposes it is at once taken away After a few repetitions this lesson sinks in The awkward baby needs to be given plenty of room in which to make his first efforts At first he can use his hammer cither to crush pebbles in the yard or to pound broad headed nails into blocks of wood When he first attempts to pound a nail we should set it for him with its point just thru the wood No matter how clumsily he wields his tool we must refrain from showing him how to hold and swing it It is better for him to discover these tngs for himself Soon he will beTible to set his own nails and will drive away lustily and with sur prising skill He should not be left alone with his hammer until we are sure he has acquired enough control so that he will not seriously injure himself PRKNtrpTrAI SHOWER FOR
