Nick is a couple of months past turning 4. He doesn’t want to take a nap anymore. He still needs a nap most days, but after “trying” for 3 or 4 minutes, he usually makes his way downstairs. I’m trying to encourage him to at least play quietly for a bit, but that’s hit or miss.
Today, I was doing some computer work when we came down. He started playing with misc. craft items in the office. First, he made a present for Sally. It included wrapping it in a tissue and using lots of tape.
Next, he decided to make flowers. He used some straws that I had picked up on a 90% Halloween clearance table. He carefully folded the flexible part to make a bouquet and taped it together. Once he had the bouquet all together, he came in with a couple of vases from the kitchen.
The next thing I knew, he was watering them in the bathroom sink – with REAL water.
Now, they are sitting on our kitchen table. They are awesome, especially if you are having allergy issues.
I love his creativity and imagination. He’s turning into quite the little engineer.
