Lately I’ve been using the morning hours during Thomas’ nap to do crafty things with Ruthie, and it’s been a lot of fun for both of us. Today we made this small poster (8×10) to illustrate Ruthie’s new bedtime routine. I wrote out the letters and cut out the pictures, but Ruthie used her new glue stick for the first time to paste the pictures onto the page. She’s getting to be such a big girl (teary sigh) and seems ready for new responsibilities, like following through on a routine.
Yesterday Ruthie painted with her new tempera paint. This stuff is fantastic! It washes out of everything with soap and water!
