Josephine (4) has been taught not to grab a toy from her little sister, Isabelle (1), but to find another toy and exchange. The beauty of this is that young Isabelle has been doing the same with her big sister.
While we are a high-tech family, we find much fun in drama.
We made a fun cat mask last week. Simple, with a few materials.
Drama and role play can be fun, too.
We were sitting on the front deck, talking about emotions. Young kids must be able to identify their feelings, especially with a sibling around.
I asked Josephine to show me: how you feel when...
|you meet someone new|
|you feel sad|
|you get a birthday present|
|Mommy says NO!|
|Isabelle steals your toy|
|You have a bad dream|
|you're making a plan|
|you see a scary movie|
We do a lot of dress-up, too. Used clothing stores have been so fun!
I videotaped the Royal Wedding, and we wore hats, gloves, and watched in fun!
