  • Us
    • I helped W- wax the car while A- played on the sidewalk.
    • I adjusted the elastic on my dust mask so that it fits better.
  • Fine motor
    • A- made Duplo stairs.
  • Sensory
    • A- wanted some tent time, so I set it up on the deck.
  • Language
    • “You’re an old man. You know!”
    • “Such a rolypoly baby we have.”
    • “I promise to be careful.”
    • “I want to build and play.”
  • Art
    • We made a ramp ball machine. I tried to make a coin dispenser, but I ran into problems with glue and torque.
    • A- and I made drawers and boxes.
  • Self-care and independence
    • A- used the glue gun by herself.
  • Household
    • A- hung up many clothes in her closet. “I organized my clothes,” she said proudly.
    • “Where’s the leash?” “Oh, I know, it’s here!” (hanging on a hook)
  • Social
    • We got to Trinity Bellwoods an hour and a half before swimming. I suggested going to the playground. A- said, “I want to do nothing.” So we just chatted and cuddled for that long.
  • Pretend
    • A- used her spray bottle to pretend to be a skunk detector and sprinkler.
    • A- was really amused when we pretended to turn a dial to adjust how much of a rolypoly baby she was.
  • World
    • A- was curious about the neighbours’ tent, so W- set up his tent in the backyard. She had lots of fun hanging out with us in it.
    • We took the pop bottle water dispenser to the wading pool. A- had fun playing with it, and H- was curious about it too.
    • We made a cardboard ball dispenser.
    • “You have to change the tires. It’s not winter any more, it’s summer.”
