On Monday we went for a walk in the woods.
Little Bee was really into picking up sticks, cones and leaves so we popped them all in a bag and took them home.
When we got home we got the paints and glitter out. Little Bee wanted pom poms too so those came out with some glue.
I sat him down with all the resources and let him get creative.
I find he enjoys these sorts of crafts much more than goal directed ones and probably spends 3 times longer concentrating and enjoying what he’s doing. We recently made a few valentines but he was much more easily distracted when I was instructing him what to do. He still enjoyed making them but they just didn’t hold his attention for as long.
