G, one of J's best friends in football class:
J told the coach he wanted to be in the same team as G.
A new plant from the school:
We had sandwiches and fish today, I made extra veggies for J:
Would you still let your little one to "help" you if he's going to make a mess (which he promised he is not goiing to make a mess)?

A few days ago I read a blog by Meri Cherry on Spring Garden Glyph and I think it would the perfect art activity to play with J, especially it's Spring now.
We did some painting some days ago. We were just exploring painting on coloured paper (instead of on white paper). I was thinking to make a collage with these painting before I came across Meri Cherry's post. But now I decided I could do something a bit more special with them.
As described from the post, "a glyph is a pictograph or symbol for something else". And I followed her idea to make Spring Garden Glyphs to share information about J using a picture.
I punched holes with my set of circle and flowery punches from EK, I also cut out some stripes and a few other shapes.
I laid out all the shapes on the table and I told J the following information (which is very similar to her post but adjusted a little bit):
1. Make some flowers. If you are 1 year old, make 1 flower. If you are 2 years old, make 2 flowers
J was very excited and happy about this especially when he was listening to the instructions. He paid attention carefully and laughed at the codings. He told me it was very funny because "sun = pet" and "insects = fruits".
I think we can do it again for sure. We can have a bigger piece of paper so we can put more things on it. We can have more colours. We can do another topic. We can try more codings.
There are more art ideas that you can do with your little ones at home. Head over to Meri Cherry's blog for more information.
Yes I know, J said he is 1 year old to "trick" people
