Snow Day, Work Day
|Cardboard Playhouse, a Christmas Gift from Discovery Store|
|Finding similarities between materials|
New England got some blizzard action this week, and kept us home for a bit. Never a dull moment though! We have been saving our cardboard art house for a snow day, so we were VERY excited to get going on it's decoration. They had dinner in there. We even had a cookie/brownie swap with our neighbors.
Bean, age 4.5, is beginning to spontaneously notice the similarities in our materials. I have been much more (umm...) lax in our ground rules. I'm noticing more creativity and concentration if I let them just go to it. One of my professors once said that if things get crazy, get low. Teacher/parent hovering causes heightened energy. She how messy she is? But look: she just discovered that a bead stair is the same exact size as the triangle metal inset. Here, she's making one for Pumpkin, age 2.5.
