Now that Nixon has turned 1 year old, I'm on a mission to include him in some of our lessons and create some of his own age appropriate activities! With both Jax and Nix, I let them "explore" with any thing or any activity that's new, rather than jumping in to showing them how it works. Isn't that what you do with a new "something" that you buy or get? Doing this, seems to spark new ideas or teach me something that I would have never thought of doing with that certain thing/activity. Just taking the time to observe your children is such an amazing thing...and lesson!
Here are a few, simple ideas I did with my littlest learner this week:
|Painting! (of course) But didn't use paper...just on his highchair tray. I thought the paper might be to much! Honestly, he didn't even try to taste it! Must be all the times he has watch Jax do it.|
