Indoor play..

Posted by Dawn at Friday, December 30, 2011
Having received new toys from Christmas sure excites the children! Day and night, they have been asking to play Playdoh..
Most parents I know do not like their children to play with this as it creates a lot of mess which they will end up cleaning. As for me, I definitely feel controlled mess is fine and if the children can learn something by being messy, why not? Its just like feeding my children. Do you train your children to feed themselves thus allowing them to mess up the floor, or would you rather feed them so that they can eat faster and cleaner?

Anyway, I always believing in providing a safe, secure and loving environment for my children to make mistakes or in this case, create mess so that they will learn. I do not wish to provide them with so much that they become too reliant on me and assume that I will always be there for them.

Today, I did with them an art and craft which was given to them for their Christmas. We had lots of fun doing it together. Here's Caleb's piece of work!
They stick it on their own..
After that, I displayed their masterpieces on top of my piano to give them a sense of satisfaction. They seemed very pleased with themselves. Good job Caleb and Danielle!
