A coronary heart garland wasn’t within the plan once we began reducing out hearts. George simply wished to do an exercise, and reducing out hearts seemed like a good suggestion since Valentine’s Day is developing (already!).

Slicing, reducing, reducing

I simply can not imagine the advantageous motor abilities George has!

I had a bunch of scrap items of paper that I’ve been slowly eliminating. I used a bunch of scraps in pink, purple, pink and a lightweight blue.

I simply folded them in half (whether or not they’re sq. or not) and drew the half of a coronary heart on it. (George did attempt drawing his personal half a coronary heart, and that simply didn’t work. I attempted a bit connect-the-dot drawing for him to make it, and it nonetheless didn’t go nicely. Simply as nicely, he liked the reducing half.)

George then lower alongside the road, completely. I used to be so impressed with how nicely he concentrated and took his time doing it time and again. He did so lots of them!

And I really like the Fiskars scissors. I at all times swore by the sharp level tip (affiliate hyperlink) for Henry, however George hasn’t had any bother with the blunt tip (affiliate hyperlink).)

I liked his response each time he opened it as much as see he made a coronary heart!

They took turns holding the yarn for the opposite to unroll and lower it.

As soon as Louis wakened although, we realized a coronary heart garland was too lengthy (their measuring wasn’t precisely correct, they’re all kinds of lengths!), and he might seize them and yank them down. So I lower it in half, which simply made it that a lot prettier!
