Making Happy Little Trees
Soren is interested in music, language, books, pretending, building with legos, climbing and anything with wheels. But holding a crayon, no way, he would rather not and usually ends up pretending that the crayons are little people talking to each other. I've witnessed him tossing the crayons I've offered him up into the air yelling, "see the people falling!!!" So, I've had to get a little creative with finding mediums that will hold Soren's interest...finger painting seemed to do the trick on one beautiful afternoon. After swirling the paint all over the paper, we took some little trucks and made tracks through the paint, he sat and did this for an HOUR! Afterwards I got out the sidewalk chalk and we drew a road with houses along the sides for his trucks to cruise on.
