|« Forget Terrible Two's... Wait Till You Get The "Terrible Fives"||Five a Day with Children »|
Children love the responsibility of ongoing projects, diary projects make for wonderful activities that you can dip into a little bit each day. Diary projects are great for identifying slow change over long periods. Buy a little notebook or staple some sheets of paper into a booklet. Select your project and each day, once a week or every couple of weeks, make an observation on your project and have your child draw what they see or capture elements of what you are observing. Take photographs and stick them into your diary.
Here are some project ideas:-
Diaries offer a great way to sustain attention on slow changing things surrounding your children and give a sense of purpose that your children will simply love! You might run projects just for a week, or you might keep one going for months. There's no reason why you can't have lots of projects on the go at any one time - why not have a different project for each day of the week?!
