“I love that you’re available to do crafts with me, Mommy.” OK, that’s the first reason I did this project. The second reason for doing this project is I’m sick of saying, “No, you may not play with my iPhone!”
But you MAY have some cardboard, markers, magazines and glue!
My grown up skills were needed to cut the cardboard. You could use paper, but then this happens…
Cut and glue favorite images onto each one for personalized iPhones! (As you can see we are proud consumers of all apple merchandise, clothing included.)
It’s hard to find activities that both the 5-year-old and 2-year-old can do together, but this was perfect. Tracing, cutting, drawing, gluing…it’s all good.
Then there’s the added bonus of dramatic play when done. “Hi, Daddy!” Vivi said. “Come home 5 minutes!”
The 5-year-old was suddenly a teenager. “I’m gonna have to wrap this up now, Mia, my mom’s telling me to brush my teeth…”
She brought a stack of iPhones to “Show and Share” this morning. I see a lot more of these in our future, especially with Earth Day around the corner. We’ve already had a request for iPads….
And the best part is my iPhone remains mine, all mine. At least for now…
