We spend mornings together with Little Man and given the fact that he is a healthy, energetic two-year-old he gets bored easily and needs to get himself busy in activities that help him channel his energy. This is quite hard to do indoors, so I need to find things to keep him busy (and safe) with things I keep around the house.
Like the box of clothespins we found the other day...
He dropped it and scattered all the clothespins on the floor. He likes to split them open and I get frustrated by this, as it's annoying trying to put them back together. So this time I turned his interest more towards "building" instead of "disassembling".
Using some large clothespins we keep for blankets and duvets as a base, I gave him super cool wings!!
Now my little transformer can run around the house trying to fly above the furniture 😂😂
The truth is he found that game so interesting that he kept giving me more and more clothespins and asking me to make his "wings" bigger and bigger. We must have spent half an hour (if not more) on the floor playing. He didn't want to take them off, not even when his right hand started to get swollen from the pressure. I removed the clothespins and he started to complain asking for his "wings" back!!
Next time we're giving him "wings" on his legs and see how that goes... 😂
