My older daughter, age 4, asked if she could make her own Grilled Cheese sandwich today. I agreed to let her spread her own butter and put the cheese on the bread. Instantly my younger daughter, age 3 (my girls are almost 16 months apart in age) asked if she could do the same. I am all for independence and easy to clean up messes so again I agreed. I told myself I would not intervene until the end. Each girl was so proud of her accomplishment. There was enough butter on each piece of bread to make a batch of cookies, but it was easily fixed! My three-year-olds bread is the top photo and my four-year-old spread the butter in the bottom photo.
They would make terrific Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches! Can you imagine what those would look like?
