Today, I was inspired to share some of the things I do with my four year old daughter. Our living space isn’t huge but we make the best with what we have. Perhaps, if I didn’t have extra shelves filled with pots and pans taking up space, we’d have more, but that’s not going to happen. I need my pots.
So, here are the things we did today.
I usually buy my mosaics on Amazon. They’re little “sticker” by number activities and the results are kind of impressive. I find them extremely relaxing to do, and Kamea just has fun because they’re stickers. We’ve done fairies, butterflies, horses, cats, dogs, and many others.
I wrote the other day how great dry erase white boards can be. I liken them to a babysitter when she’s off on her own drawing.
Sometimes we paint the styrofoam, too.
We are especially in love with Iggy Peck Architect and all of the books Andrea Beaty writes.
Board games are a hit in our house. Usually.
This Circuits Jr. science activity is really good, whether you homeschool or not.
We make food in the kitchen multiple times a day. Here’s our almond butter green-brown smoothie. Kamea likes to lick the almond butter off the spoon.
And, of course, lots of hugs, kisses, and snuggle time, which this orange dog blanket (shown below) is ridiculously awesome for. I had no idea how cute it was until it arrived. The eyes glow in the dark and it’s really soft. It’s not organic, but sometimes ya just gotta go for it.
