So I am making an effort to have a plan of attack each day after nap, especially as the weather gets cold and we're stuck inside. Mostly so Lakin and I don't both go crazy.
Yesterday our activity was painting the pumpkins we brought home from the patch weeks ago.
When Lakin woke up and came upstairs with me her eyes lit up with excitement when she saw the pumpkins waiting on the table and paint available for her to use. She begs to paint everyday. She turned to me and squealed, "Mommy, are we doing a project?" I had to laugh. Where does she learn these things?
Here's our step by step tutorial for pumpkin painting. It's very complex so feel free to reread for clarity.
It entertained our tot for an hour. Only Dora has been able to keep her attention that long!
