I mentioned in a earlier post that I am trying very hard to include Mateo in more of our activities. I usually do "school" activities and art projects with Diego while Mateo is napping. I didn't start doing any of these types of activities with D until he turned two. M just turned 21 months but he is so excited when I include him that I am now planning a lot of activities designed for the two different ages. This week we are doing activities and reading books about snow, snowmen, and winter. For Diego, I drew the shapes on different colored paper and let him cut them out by himself and then assemble the snowman by himself. For Mateo, I pre-cut all of the shapes and then put glue where they should go and let him place them there. D stayed very busy cutting out his pieces while I talked to M about the shapes, colors, and sized of the pieces. This seemed to work very well for us.
