I have decided that Anna is old enough to handle a scotch tape dispenser. As I expected, she was over the moon – clearly to her it was a major milestone on the path of becoming a big kid. She kept saying excitedly, I am doing it all on my own, like an adult! I am excited too – scotch tape makes certain projects less pretty, but also less messy, and the 3D pieces don’t fall off as easily. Anna ended up making a few collages with yarn pieces. I was hoping that she will measure the yarn, but she was not interested… then. The next day she made collages with used up coffee holders and kept measuring them to make sure the pieces will fit on the page. Her coffee holder collage ended up as “an airplane tower and a big building” even though it started originally as a tree and was named “ladder with steps” in the middle of the project. I see a lot more of those scotch tape projects coming our way until scotch tape loses its novelty.
