We’ve been baking a lot lately! Mr. T is all about being in the kitchen right now. He’s doing such a great job, I try to always say yes unless we just can’t for some reason. He’s becoming quite the little chef. I love how good he is getting at setting the table, too.
Since we’ve been spending so much time in the kitchen I though a kitchen tool discovery bowl would be fun for Mr. F. He’s fallen in love with the Egg egg beater and takes it everywhere now. He also likes beating things with the rolling-pin. As long as it isn’t his big brother, I’m cool with that.
We picked up a bird feeder kit at Hobby Lobby per Mr. T’s request. Mommy didn’t pay close enough attention, though. It did not come with pre-drilled starter holes like the kits from Lowe’s and Home Depot, so I had to help more than we usually do, but we did eventually get it glued and nailed together and we had a good time doing it.
Mr. T got my camera (I actually got it out, I’ve been taking all iPhone pictures lately and decided it was time to get out my big girl camera) and he began snapping pictures and got this one of the bird feeder that I thought was really cool. Mr. T’s camera is on the fritz, so we will be needing to replace it soon. I love seeing the world from his perspective.
He’s very serious about his wood working. I love that he is able to focus for such long periods of time when it’s a project he is really taking interest in. I think we will be incorporating a lot more delight directed learning into our pre-k learning this fall.
Here is the wonderful bird feeder all put together! Mr. T painted it and it looks lovely! We just need to get some seed in it and find it a home outside and the birdies can go to town! Do your little ones like to build things? And do you make your own or buy kits? I’d love to have a new kit resource!

Letting the littles do their own building like this is such a great idea! What a good use of their energy.
