Then today I quick made the template for the apple and leaf that I wanted them to use. (I miss having a printer at home!!) Then we started on our project! A couple of weeks back I bought them some scissors that I thought would work well for them and be safe, umm...yeah....NOPE! I'll have to go and buy them different scissors.
I have different expectations for the boys but I did the same project with them. For Little M, I cut out the apple and "helped" him cut out the leaf. While I'm sure he would love to do the glue himself...I made the decision that I would put glue on his paper and then he could put the beans on both the red and green paper. He had a blast!
For Little N I had John help him cut out the apple and leaf out. We are pretty certain that Little N is a leftie so it's just interesting to watch him do different things. He got frustrated easily with his scissors so we let him use our sharp scary scissors. But I let him use the glue and put the beans on the apple and the leaf anyway he wanted to. He had a blast doing it and was focused on doing a good job and not trying to mess up.
Our apple project was a great way to spend our Friday afternoon before daddy left to go lead youth group.
Mommy, I can't do it! Help me.
