Window clings. One of the ways to Mason's heart.
I feel like Mason might be a little old to still love window clings as much as he does, but regardless, who am I to deny my little man the joy of window clings, so when I found these four sets in the Target dollar bin, I knew I had to get them.
There was a "crayon" set labeled with different colors, an apple set, a "learning is fun" set, and a school bus/school house set. We started off with the crayon set and I read each color to Mason as he put them up. "Red, Yellow, Dark Blue, Light Pink..." There were 12 in all. And after he hung them all up, I asked him where certain colors were and had him point to them.
Then we hung up all of the rest of the window clings and I described them all to him as he hung them up. I gave him the yellow school bus and then asked him to put the wheels with the bus.
Then I pulled off the school house, the sun, the grass, the clouds, the apples, the leaves, etc and just let him put them wherever he wanted. As you can see, the grass went in the sky and the clouds went on the ground. I tried to correct him and help him move them, but he immediately moved them back and looked annoyed that I moved them in the first place. Touché Mason, you win :)
The activity only lasted maybe 15-20 minutes total since he knew exactly where he wanted to put each item, but nevertheless, he enjoyed the activity and has gone back multiple times to look at his masterpiece. He even brought Daddy over to check it out when he got home from work. It's the Little Things that are the most fun!
