Eliot doesn't love coloring. Or painting. Or play-doh. He will humor me for approximately 6 minutes on all said activities before I hear, "Mommy? Get down?" Sometimes I don't even bother. Then other times I get a burst of motivation to engage Captain Destructo in some creative fine motor activities. This week it came while in the grocery store. 6 sponges for $0.99. There's a craft I can get behind. I cut them into shapes and all the sudden, we're in Montessori school, right? I'm so on my way to home-schooling.
A few months ago, we tried painting with kitchen utensils. That was a really inspiring 6 minutes.
We'll get there, right?
