Put together the LEGO Christmas 2016 Reindeer Mini set with CharisI bought it at Target as a last minute purchase. I found it in their holiday section, but if you don't want to go out in the crowds at Christmas it's also sold on (aff. link) Amazon.
On December 2, Charis was squirrelly and would not sit still. I decided to throw away my home school plans for the afternoon and let her put together the Lego Reindeer.
She loved it! I was knitting nearby, and every so often asked, "Do you need help?" "No, I'm still working." As much as I love reading and following Lego directions, it was awesome to see Charis figure it out independently-on her own. FYI, I am NOT a Type A person. I like the idea of order, but what's order?!? I often find myself rearranging my plans for the day in order to better (hopefully) meet the needs of my children.
Do you homeschool? Have you thrown out your lessons for the day?
