I asked Egan if he wanted to learn something new last week, which of course he said "Yes!" So, I went and grabbed a little pair of (real!) scissors and some colored art foam. I showed him how to hold the scissors and let him pick some colors of foam. He went to town cutting it in to tiny pieces. He even managed to not cut his hair or any other body part… this time. The safety goggles? Totally his idea. As soon as he saw the supplies I was gathering, he went and got those himself.
Once he had done enough cutting, I got out a bottle of clue and showed him how to put a tiny dot on the background and stick the small pieces on top. He got a little crazy with the glue, so the art pieces took some extra time to dry, but that's ok.
I don't know if I've ever seen him so proud of his art. He was thrilled to say the least.
