What to muse about today?

February 15, 2014 ~ Pre-Snow Painting

Teagan didn’t have dance class today, so I took both girls to Michael’s for a crafty activity.  Ashlin had asked after her outing last week to go again.  Teagan, well, she likes doing crafts, and keeping her busy always helps.

This time was very different than last weekend.  Ashlin was barely anxious, scared.  Teagan must have given her courage, or maybe knowing the room, what to expect.  She dropped her hat, mittens, scarf and coat on the floor and scurried over to pick out a pair of scissors.

I cut it?

Ashlin was much better with scissors this week than last, though she still needed a lot of help.  That’s ok.  She’s not quite three. Teagan rocked scissors, though she did need a little help with the bumpy bit at the top of the heart.  She got halfway done with cutting while I picked up the coats and hats and stuff.

The worker modified the craft a little, I guess the watercolor painting wasn’t a great idea…  Both girls tended towards the black and dark colors today.  “Our parents like black.  We need to use black” the worker said when I picked them up.  LOL.

So, the crayons came out.  There’s still some black, but not like the watercolors the girls did, and I got to take home.

I also got to take home these awesome hearts!
