Besides wanting an excuse to color, I also looked forward to BB coloring to see and encourage his creativity and because it's kind of a lazy parent/child activity and sometimes I really need a lazy parent/child activity.
Fortunately, he does like to be creative and I love encouraging that!
He really enjoys participating in art classes at Hero's, although I think it's the bouncing that he likes the most.
He also enjoyed doing some spring projects I stole from Pinterest recently:
The first was our Easter cards, made by sticking paper strips to these rabbit-shaped cards I picked up at Michaels. They come already sticky, so we didn't have to mess with glue or double-sided tape. Very fun.
The second was salt dough ornaments. I don't know why, but he really loved this project, from the mixing of the dough to rolling it out to cutting it out to painting. It was a lot of fun to see him so excited about something I was so excited about!
I can't wait for our next project!
