My days a home with the little guy are also very much like that. We wake up and then decide what super fun things we are going to do that day, all based around what William is interested in of course. He is really into playing with his trucks at the moment so a lot of our games and activities are based around that. When we are out we see who can spot the most trucks, we take our trucks to the park to play and we make our trucks talk to one another (I am really trying to encourage the little guys speech atm).
It was Nanny's birthday last week and we needed to make something special for her, we had run out of time so I asked the little guy if he wanted to do a painting for her and of course his answer was no. So I had to draw on some of my creative ideas that are filed away in my teacher head space (I let her out every now and then) and come up with something that is a little more exciting then just painting with a paint brush. In the past I have tried dipping his little trucks into paint and driving them across paper but he didn't like that idea. So this time I tried a painting with a ball. Will thought I was crazy but he trusts his Mumma implicitly so he went with it.
I put out some paint with a bit of glitter swirled into it and he loved looking at it in the sunshine. Will rolled the ball in the paint and then had fun rolling it across his paper. We put the piece of paper into a tray so that he could hold the tray in his hands and roll it around.
We also tried dropping the ball onto the paper and looking at the interesting marks it left behind. He was having such a great time that he stayed with the experience for a lot longer then he normally would have, which is a good sign because now we can start doing much more complex art projects.
Here is the finished artwork and it looks lovely, he was really pleased with it and wanted to keep it, so I cut it in half and gave one half to Nanny and the other half is being displayed proudly on our fridge.
