RED!

The Unplug Your Kids
group project theme for today is RED.
Here is what we did.
I gave Princess this block of RED modeling clayAnd I let her do whatever she wanted with it......




She played around with just the red for a bit,then I pulled out the other colors.
It must have been an hour of "quiet".

That is a great idea. She is so creative to. An hour of quiet time, how lucky are you.

What a wonderful idea! I love her little person, very creative.

Isn't it amazing how something as simple as modeling clay can give one an hour of peace? I like to keep some in my purse in a plastic Easter egg to pull out for entertainment emergencies away from home.

Thanks for joining us and I look forward to seeing what Princess comes up with next week for "Box!"

What a great idea to just give her the lump of clay! And an hour of quiet? What a successful project! :o)

Wow! An hour!! I know that was nice. She did a great job. (BTW, I love her curly hair - so pretty!) My 5 year old would have probably made train tracks with the clay - he has a one "tracked" mind. haha! Thanks for sharing your "red".

She used my favorite: spirals. So naturally I love it. Spirals on top of spirals. Spirals are huge in religion and mythology and legends. She is responding to her inner mathematician.

I like the spirals - they remind me of an artisan basket.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
