Before bragging about my rampant craftiness, I would like to wish you a Happy Springtime in the following video.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled programing.
Recently I posted this photo of AC’s attempts at being a crafty, old coot.
As I said at the time, being a crafter is a highly unlikely pastime for moi, for I have no talent or inclinations in that direction. But, I do want to do something postive with Nikki Dee during my time with her, so I am giving it the old,
college nursery school try. (I say Nikki Dee and not Zach because we usually do a craft whilst the boy has his lengthy nap. It works better for the addled Buppa to only have to deal with one crafter at a time and the older one at that.)
We’ve done several versions of hand puppets and things with gluing cotton balls on construction paper. One day, we did a flower and put a picture in the middle. This is Zach’s, but Nikki Dee had one too.
She looks forward to whatever the heck I’m going to bring next and usually grabs my backpack and dives into it the moment that I arrive for my afternoon vigil.
So, the old guy figured that he’d better gear up a little. Cuppa took me shopping for supplies, and I now have more to work with — albeit without much of a clue of what to do with the stuff.
I do have the following simple activity lined up the the next two days, however.
I have scanned some pictures from some from her early Readers and typed words that go with the pictures. She will be given the pictures and words (cut out) separately, and we will work on pasting the correct words onto the appropriate images.
I have two such sheets ready to go, so when she tires of one, we have another ready to take its place.
This activity should get me through two days. She’ll visit a friend for a third day, so I’ll only have one more day to figure out for later in the week.
Wish me luck … and stop that snickering. I mean it!
