Poor Neomi wanted to go to her favorite boy from kindergarten to play- but he changed his mind and invited someone else. Then I told her to invite another friend to our home and one of her best friends wanted to come but changed her mind too later on. Neomi was very sad and it just breaks my heart to see her like this. I went through situations like this many times as a girl … and I also know it's part of being a kid, part of growing up… but it still is hard. In the end we agreed on doing something with gouache at home.
I gave the girls all kinds of items to try stamping with. Lego, pieces of plastic pipes, cinnamon sticks, cork, lids….
For a while they were occupied and we had after all a nice "after-daycare-time".
