Open Ended ArtThis week we are canning pickles, packing buckets and more, so no hope for formal tot school. But, I will tell you something - she has really impressed me with how well she plays by herself and what a wonderful imagination she has! She will sit and play for hours and have a storyline to go with it. She is also building tents out of couch cushions and just being a kid. I am thankful that she is so happy and content no matter what is going on around her! While we are missing in action, feel free to check out our past Tot School posts! And see what others are doing for Tot School here!
My husband gave me a bouquet of daisies and after about a week, they were calling Elli's name to be arranged. My goal was to give her a love and appreciation for beautiful things. Hopefully one day she will be a joyful keeper at home!
We have made several trips to the fountains and this is just some of the fun she has had. Our first trip she would not even go near the water and now she is truly enjoying it! (She still stays near the smaller ones, though!)
And don't you just love her outfit? I made those pants, but not for that top! She is quite independent when it comes to dressing herself, but she still lets me do her hair. :-)
Malachi is studying the letter W, so we made several trips to the creek to go wwwading.
I included this pic to show you how to roll your two and a half year old daughter's hair in curlers. While she is asleep, of course :-) She helped pick them out and of course chose pink. We I thought it would be fun and cute for a photo shoot for the Edwardian Apron and dress I made for her. (Coming soon!)
