Recently I saw a project idea that I loved — painting small wooden blocks, which could then be used for stacking and playing. (And of course all the other kind of block play, like throwing and whacking. But we like to gloss over those bits.) Mica loves blocks right now, and routinely tries to win the World Championship Cuteness Award by stacking up a tower, and then clapping her hands and saying “I did it!” So within three days I sat down with Mica and Nathan and their grandma (Ryan abstained) for some painting.
It may surprise you to know that some of the paint got on the blocks, too.
