The conversation during the invisible game went like this…
“Let’s play Triopoly, Barbie!
Ok, Chelsea. You take your turn first. Thank you.
Here, Barbie, have some money. You can have lots of money!
Move this piece, Ken. Ok, Barbie, here’s more money.
I’ll take some money. No, Ken you can’t have any money.”
The game ended abruptly…
“Ok, so Barbie and Chelsea won the game so Ken is grumpy because he lost.
So Ken is hanging by his feet from the table because he is grumpy.”
We’ve been a busy lot. I planned on making individual posts to share our crafting fun but I can’t keep up with such a flurry of crafting events! So here are some fun times with my granddchildren.
Building with the big blocks. The kids love the cake blocks I painted last year. So we made them some big blocks to play with. Eventually we’ll paint these.
Sorting the Colored Pencils. It was almost as much fun sorting the pencils as it was drawing with them!
And then there was the Beading-on-a-Wire. It was actually a frantic effort to defuse a melt down. It worked for at least thirty minutes.
We cut dolls out of plywood. She didn’t want to wait until the doll was dressed. It sprang to life immediately!
And last night we painted some plastic Easter Eggs. This took much concentration because the eggs were slippery.
It was very messy, of course. Paint is supposed to be messy!
So we gave him a heavy wood block to paint.
But we have lots of eggs so we’ll be painting again.
