Last year, I found a blog with a free printable nativity scene and characters. I printed it, had it laminated, added velcro to each character and some to the nativity scene so he could place the characters where they belonged. I gave it to Spencer, who played with it some, but largely ignored it. This year, I got it back out, and you would have thought I gave him $1,000. He continued to ask, "You made this for ME?" "You cut it out, and laminated it, and gave it to me?!"
He so enjoyed it this year. He loved to quiz me about it and tell me about it. I finally sneaked it away from him towards the end of January. Clearly I should do more things like this for him. You know, in all my free time.
