One Sorry Snowman

Sometimes what you perceive as being a grand plan turns out to be, well, a dud.

Case in point:

We’ve embarked on a Snowman unit. It was all smooth sailing until I introduced the art project.

Making a Marshmallow Snowman

The object was to glue mini marshmallows within the outline, thus creating a fluffy little masterpiece.

And the fact that it incorporated Parker’s current OT skills wasn’t an accident either.


I should have taken my first clue that this wasn’t going to go well by Parker’s first reaction to the little cup of marshmallows.


Oh, so NOW the kid decides he wants to put food in his mouth. arg. lol.


But wait! Look! That’s the grip we are looking for!


Alas, it quickly deteriorated into Parker just wanting to hurl handfuls of marshmallows towards the stinkin’ snowman and be done with it.

I can’t say that I blamed him much.


Here’s the finished project. Parker and I both breathed a sigh of relief when it was done.

Wisely I decided that the white on black painting could be postponed.

What Parker’s Reading

Many a morning Parker wakes up and the very first thought he shares is: Book. Yeah. That is one sign...
