Ayla found a screen-free activity book I bought a few years ago and has been set on doing the activities or making things (slime, dough, pretend worlds). Yesterday we made “cloud dough.” Today she wanted to make a water world and my mom suggested an ocean world using the cloud dough as sand. She’s needed encouragement but has been using her imagination to have fun. We also made some glitter slime after finding the right ingredients. It is fun to watch her explore new textures and develop her imagination. I need to remember to remain patient in her learning.
