I then gave him the task of sorting out the shapes and colours into correct sizes, and then to group them into three piles of different size and colour. He was able to do all of this and more to the point, he was excited that he was totally capable of doing this.
I asked him to glue them down, and we stood back and admired his handiwork :)
This kid surprises me more and more each day. I am so lovin this amazing little guy.
