Skipping school...to build a town!
Okay so no one is really sick, well I'm recovering, but my nine year old who missed the bus this morning, he's not sick. He is however home from school today. Little One is overjoyed and yes, we've been having fun. Taking a moment to celebrate my son, he IS very talented. I wish I could afford to nurture his creativity more than I do here at home. Board and restless, he came up with the idea to create our town in a 3D map! Why not?
Using poster board (and math) he cut the buildings and taped them together. He also drew on them, recreating his favorite shops and places to visit in town. When he was finished he said,
"I only wish there were tiny little people to walk down the street."
Maybe we will make them the next time he misses the bus?
I'm still recovering and it's slow going, but today I read Goodnight Moon to Little One and he was so happy! I'm glad so many of you enjoyed my last post and I want you to know if you have any questions, please ask them and I'll try and answer with a post. There was more to the workshop including a resource list which I will post soon. I'm glad you found it helpful!
