Arts and Crafts
Last week we were at my parents house and Graham took a liking to my mom's Buddha Board. I was painting on it and he seemed very interested. So we set him up at the table and he immediately knew what to do; he held the paint brush in his hand, dipped in water and starting painting. It entertained him for some time. The next day, my mom and I headed to Michael's and got him some watercolors and paper. He has a little more difficulty painting, because he has to dip in water, then paint, THEN paper. That third step eludes him a bit. Nevertheless, this is an activity that he truly enjoyed. Perhaps we'll have another artist in the family! The playdoh didn't go quite as well - he tried to eat it. Perhaps he's still a bit too young for that.
It was a hot day and after a lot of painting and playing, there was nothing left to do but chill with mom and Cooper on the couch.
