Yesterday was one of those lovely, smooth, and delightful days.
First we retrieved the frozen balloons we had set out the day (or two?) before. Then there was chopping, peeling, and exploring. C quickly took off upstairs to enjoy a bath with one frozen sphere-ish shape. E stayed downstairs to litter the remaining balloons with letters and to “read” them to himself.
Then there was more fun downstairs. C likes to line up letters and let me read aloud the resulting sounds. He’ll add on more and more and gleefully laugh at what it sounds like. Then me moved on to numbers and successfully read all the 0’s (he called them ‘o’) and 1-4 alone. All the capital A’s made a nice shape he thought.
Marble maze. This is not really a child directed activity since I MUST build the thing and make it awesome. I do give it to them to use and destroy after I have my fun. 🙂 We made a couple of these.
Also, I was instructed to hang C’s paper airplanes (last 1-2 weeks’ project) like this. I hung them improperly the first time and he carefully explained further how I need 2 strings to get them facing the right way and which way that should be. And then he checked on my work and finally approved.
