This was the project that we did for what ended up the theme of "long" for Unplug Your Kids
It took about 2 hours for us to complete this project, a "long time". But what started out as a fun art project, that I wasn't so sure about, ended up being many different lessons in one. These are those small plastic beads that help with small motor skills and I had Bug counting how many beads we needed and what colors, it was nice. He made it educational, I didn't push it. He has been putting numbers into anything, shows an interest in measuring this with the tape measure, which we also did for the "long" theme. He really enjoyed this project and there are many other 3-D animals in the kit we got to work on this next week! Two for the price of one! I love seeing what Bug learns with every day living!
