My ongoing project is cultivating my own creative moments while spending time with my daughter. She is 2. She enjoys telling people what to do. I recently found an agreeable activity (for both of us) for this stage. We go for walks and take pictures. She's in the backpack, pointing and directing, and I take the pictures.
Our companion projects started with our foot tracing drawings, then continued with our Snowy Day Walks this winter. The other day, we were out for a spring walk, and I wanted to take some photos of some amazing tree stumps. She got into it , and started saying "take picture this. digger truck!" And so now we have a new side by side ongoing art project. I'm thrilled.
