The first thing Brayden wanted to do was paint a Christmas picture. I used green washable paint and painted his hand 6 times and we made his handprints into a Christmas tree. I put lines on the bottom of the tree and let him use brown paint to paint in the trunk of the tree. Then I asked him if he wanted to add ornaments to the tree and of course he said yes, but he painted them around the tree. Silly boy! I let him paint how he wanted with out correcting him since it was his picture.
With Brayden being 3 1/2, I also want to work on his writing skills. I wrote his name on a piece of paper with yellow marker, and had him trace over it. The yellow is easy for him to see and easier to follow than hash marks. After we tried his name, we worked on the letter A.
I don't want to push Brayden to do more than he wants, so this was all we did on this day. His attention span isn't very long, so we moved onto something more playful. I do think he enjoyed his time with me. I know I enjoyed being able to focus on just him.
I can't wait to show you more of what we do!
Any suggestions are welcome!!
