Nolan and I made a birdhouse from a kit. He really liked using the real hammer.
I really liked making something with him, even if it was out of a kit.
I am impressed with how logical he was with his thinking and decision making- which piece should be added next, where the glue and nails would go, etc. I was really proud of him.
Then he painted the birdhouse. I took the roof off, since it just sits on top, not hammered in. Nolan got really upset because i kept suggesting he paint the outside of the house, not the interior walls.
Then I just let him paint it however he wanted to. It's his birdhouse. And hopefully some bird will truly appreciate the abstract painting on the interior wall.
