My kids have the whole week off from school, which is a welcome break on many levels. It also means keeping them busy.
While I enjoy doing activities with my children, I also believe in encouraging them to be independent, whether exploring outside or finding something to do inside.
My youngest would prefer that I prep all her crafts, that I declare what we will be doing, and that I give all my spare time crafting her projects in tandem with her.
When I came home yesterday and found her handmade turkey, made from cardboard, popsicle sticks, and glitter, I was thrilled.
She conceived the idea on her own, gathered materials, and made it without needing reassurance. Praise God, we’ve turned a corner…time will tell how big of one.
I love that turkey in all its arty goodness!!
