My daughter received a scrapbook as a birthday gift, and she was so excited. Seeing me doing my scrapbook, she always wanted to help, but I am afraid she would mess it up, so I would distract her to do other things instead.
Anyway, I provided the pictures and details, ask her questions (based on the scrapbook) and she was on the go! Her first day, we spent 3 hours on the carpet, she didn't want to stop and rest... until we run out of pictures. Then I ordered some pictures thru the internet and once we got them, we spent another 2 hours on the carpet and viola, here's her masterpiece!
I included the second picture in her scrapbook, taken in the 2003 Toronto Winter Festival. She looked at the ice maze --
My daughter (age: 2.5 years old)
and here's our conversation:
Patricia: Mommy, who is that? (pointing at the second picture)
Me: That's you.
Patricia: Wow! I'm still a baby...
Patricia: But mommy, how did I get out of the maze? I don't know how I did it?
Me: (Smiling) You were calling out to your brother and by following the sound of his voice you made it out of the maze.
Patricia: Ooooh! I am smart! (looking proud and happy, the look on her face was priceless)
She really did a nice job with her scrapbook, very neat for a 5 year old... So now I'm thinking of letting her assist me when I do her photo albums.
Then she look at another picture of her sitting in the potty:
Patricia: Mommy, who is that?
Me: That's you!
Patricia: No, it's not. It's ahiya. (Ahiya is a chinese term for big brother)
Me: See what you're holding?
I was referring to the Hello Kitty tea cups that she was holding in her hands. Then she look at the picture closely and recognizing her toys, she said:
Patricia: Ooooh! Yes, that's me.
