I’d like to think that our kids get their creativity from Paul and I, whether that’s true who knows. Either way both J & E are incredibly creative kids, who seem at their happiest when sat at the table with their colouring pens and crayons.
Little Miss Mindful
E has become rather taken with what we refer to as ‘mindful colouring’ whereas J has transferred his skills to his laptop, which he is now using to create a range of comic strips and animations upon.
Little Graphics Guy
Whilst I’m forever trying to find homes for the kids endless piles of pictures, portraits and such-like, I couldn’t be a prouder parent. I tend to keep most of their art work in labelled boxes in the garage, this later gets sorted and moved into the attic for storage. When possible, I try to date their artwork as a record of their progress. I’m sure that one day they will back upon their drawings, paintings and pictures with pride and hopefully fond memories of their childhood.
I believe art to be an essential element of child development, offering children the tools and the time to express themselves through colour and creativity is a fantastic way in which to communicate ideas, thoughts and feelings, it is also a relaxing, restful activity whilst being fantastic fun!
Thanks for reading and as always I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
