Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary -- How Does Your Garden Grow?
The other day, DD8, whose name is NOT Mary, was quite contrary. She seemed to be in need of some "time-in" ("girl-time" as she called it), so I suggested that we plant the flowers we'd purchased for her own little garden. Together, we created a little garden AND a little video about our work to share with Dad. Alas, the video simply WILL NOT load here. It's too bad because she really gave Emily Yeung and Daniel Cook a run for their money;) Anyway, here are a couple of stills to document the creative event:
Can you suggest any other creative ways of helping children get out of their "funks"?
