“Mom! Let’s see what happens if we do this…” This one gave me chills. Curiosity is the mother of invention.
We picked a bouquet of different flowers noting their names, variations of color, shape, and size. Hitting all those good ole’ elements and principles of art without even trying. Cora says she earned, and wants, a “badge” so we’re talking about making one and then starting our own version of girl scouts. Then she pulled all the petals and practiced tossing them in anticipation of her aunt’s wedding next month where she’ll be a flower girl.
Lots and lots of independent play with lots and lots of narration. I bet you never knew HotWheels could be princesses learning to go potty…
Some days just click. Today was one of those. We moved effortlessly through errands, chores, and playful learning. I wish they could all be like this.
