WORDLESS WEDNESDAY: A Craft Project with a Toddler

Toddlers have the attention span of--well, a toddler. Baby T loves to do projects, though, so we're always working on crafts. But it's not usually a linear event. This is how doing a craft project with a toddler normally goes in my house.
The project required painting paper plates. Baby T just
wanted to squeeze the paint onto the plates.

"Hey mom! I want to ride my bike!"

"Ooh, puddles! I have to take my shoes off!"

Baby T ditched the bike and the shoes and ran through
the puddles.

"Mom, why are you taking pictures of the puddles?"

Baby T wanted to ride his bike again...

and run through the puddles again.

"Hey Mom! I want to ride my bike through the puddle!"

Pushing the bike forward...

sitting on the bike...

and pushing the bike backward.

Sitting in the puddle.

Bike and foot prints.

Little M watched from the sidelines with me.

Now back to the project. Painting the plates inside the tipi...

and painting the tipi.

Finishing the project after lunch and a nap.

"Look, Mom!"

Fast forward to finished project. Ta da!

Love it! This is totally how projects go in our house too. Sometimes I need to remind myself to let it all unfold as it will. Love that shot of the footprints and the bike trail!
