Open ended creative experience

Today I read about Various theories about open-ended learning at Mommy Lab and
The Artful Parent, which got me thinking of changing my approach from trying to make everything structured to make learning effortless.

I sat with M with a plan to create some decorative flowers with tissue paper and straw. It took another turn when M decided to makes faces instead of flower.To my delight, she took charge and wanted to make puppet for all family members. Then they all had to wait at the bus stop. So I made some holes on the top of a corrugated box and all members were standing at the bus stop.

Then we moved onto painting with the tissue paper by dipping it in water.
Overall, it was a fulfilling experience for me as a mother to indulge in this activity driven by my daughter.
