These two words are guaranteed to send my kids racing my way. Sometimes I have planned craft, like water bottle fireflies or super cool pet rocks. Sometimes it is more an open-ended craft set up where I pull out markers, crayons, stickers, various shapes cut out of colored paper, glue sticks, etc.
Today I had some of those long sheets of packing paper and crayons. The idea was to draw a mural.
After a while I suggested some other items he might like to include on the mural. He added a sunshine, a few clouds, and some trees.
Originally I thought we’d hang them on the wall in the garage. (One of the few places with an empty wall long enough for the paper we were using.)
He loves his “shady spot” on his bed. It was the perfect place to snuggle and take care of the stuffed babies for a while this morning.
I love when their creativity takes over!
