You may not have noticed, but the boys recently got haircuts…from me. Baloo was easy – I just let him play on the iTouch! Royal however threw a fit. One for the record books I think. And it ended with me buying a huge bag of M&Ms to bribe him with (which kind of worked).
Anyway, I was left with quite a few M&Ms. I’m not quite ready to give up on my 2012 diet yet, so I decided we needed to find another way to use them up. I had the boys sort them M&Ms based on color. M&Ms seem to be a great motivator for Royal because he was sorting like crazy!
Then I drew a little Christmas tree. I started off with dot markers, but the dots were too big. So I ended up drawing little circles with a marker. Worked perfectly! I made all the circles in the Christmas tree shape and told the boys to match the green and brown M&Ms to the little circles.
Once they finished the tree I told them to decorate their trees with the rest of the colors. Royal didn’t quite get this far. He was much too distracted with eating the M&Ms. Baloo had a great time making his tree though!
