Additional Information:

J (2Y6M11D) was showing interest in squeezing washcloth during shower, so I let him try this today. He didn't have the strength to squeeze and couldn't do the twisting, but he was trying hard and doing his best :-)

C tried it on 13 November 2019 (3Y5M27D). She did it for a short while, but lost interest quickly :-( I think it was because I have tried this activity with her, when she was younger. Thus, the novelty wasn't there.
