Ali and I decided to do some creative “coloring” yesterday. We used Play-Doh instead of crayons to color our pages. Ali understood the concept a lot better than I thought that she would:
Inspecting her (although mostly my) work:
Of course, not too happy that she had a teeny smidge of Play-Doh on her finger. Such a girly-girl. “Mommy get it off!!!”
By the way, these great coloring pages can be printed for free at Scripture Melodies, a site that some friends of ours created to house the wonderful scripture memory songs that they have written, along with accompanying coloring pages. I have found that the coloring pages are great for Ali – they are simple and easy to understand and color, and she loves recognizing people from the scriptures on them – Mary, Joseph, Jesus, Angels, etc. I highly recommend them!
More creative play. Five years ago, I probably would have laughed at my Mom for how many toys of ours that she still had. However, it’s so fun to see Ali playing with my favorite childhood toys. So nostalgic!
