Square peg, round hole

Benjamin has a snaily thng that has a shell that you put shaped plastic bricks in. So he was trying to do it himself, trying to get the star shaped on into the star shaped hole, and he wouldn't get the hang of lining it up, and kept getting stressed and hitting the shape against the hole edges and trying to force it. So anyway, I gave him a little help, and after a while we were getting them in, not first time, but after a little calm contemplation. And then we changed shape and we started all over again. After a while he figured he could just lift the lid and put the shape in without trying to match it to the appropriate hole, clever benjamin.
