Visiting different places and enjoying different activities with a toddler brings so many creative interactions to light. Like pennies.
Keeping her active and happy brought us to the smashing a penny machine. The first one was at the Lews Ginter Botanical Garden when out our Cutie Patootie was only two.
Next came many travels in Europe for three years and luckily more smashed pennies with her mom and dad. In Germany pennies come from several castles and Bavaria; other pennies are from Prague and Venice.
Now she is the most precocious five year old! “Noni, what are you going to do with the pennies?”
Of course I had an idea and with Christmas coming I knew the bracelet I planned would get lost with the many toys. Now I have it ready for Valentine’s Day.
We contantly plan activities to learn and enjoy, even picking up pine cones to use as fire starters. One activity I’ve planned for years are tea parties! (Raising sons causes dreams of tea parties) I’ve had this Beatrice Potter Porcelain Tea set for about 30 years!
