It has been raining, raining, raining here for the past week. There hasn’t been a lot of opportunities for outside play, or even active play, so Wyatt is starting to go a little stir crazy. This morning, we both woke up in a bad mood and with a whole day of being cooped up in the house stretching before us, I knew that I had to try to come up with an activity or two to keep my little buddy busy.
Wyatt said he was interested in doing some art, so I got online and found a project idea for us to try. The project was set up for an adult to do most of the work and that didn’t seem like it would be very much for Wyatt so we modified it a little.
I cut out the picture and traced Wyatt’s hands and cut them out, but I let him do all the rest of the cutting and gluing. He also picked out all the letters to put on the leaf. I was a bit surprised to see how close he got to getting all the letters in his name by himself. I only needed to prompt him to pick the “Y” off the sticker sheet.
It still ended up being as much my project as Wyatt’s but we had fun.
Now, I just need to come up with something else to fill the rest of the hours of this day…..
