Planes, Trains, & Automobiles. Lincoln is a typical boy, indeed. If something has wheels [or wings], he is in his glory. Investing in his train table was one of our best purchases. He plays with this every single day. Right now Lincoln is particularly obsessed with airplanes and spaceships. I think this is because we’ve been traveling to Florida so much, and he just loves to fly. I countdown from 10 with him and we say “blast off!!!” He then lifts his plane or spaceship into the air and we celebrate. So fun!
Balls. What kid doesn’t love balls? We have so many, and Lincoln has just loved them since he could first hold [and throw] them. We’re still working on the catching part, but he already has one heck of an arm!
Puzzles. This is a more recent activity Lincoln enjoys. All of a sudden it’s like something clicked inside his little brain that told him how to do a puzzle, and he just loves them! He is finally realizing that he needs to look at the piece before trying to put it in. You see, my boy is VERY strong-willed. While I might try to show him how to do something the correct way, he doesn’t ever like to hear it. He used to get very frustrated with puzzles, simply because he was trying to rush through them. Now, he’ll actually be excited when I bring out the puzzles. And he is SO proud of himself when he completes it!
Water. From baths, to his water table, to the dog’s water dish, Lincoln loves splashing around.
So there you have it. My sweet boy is into many, many things. What sort of things do your children enjoy?
