He loves to draw, and he's talented! Neither my husband or I are artistically inclined--so we're not sure where the talent for drawing comes from. I bought him a sketchbook which he has filled with drawings. And lately, he's been creating his own comic book. He even made two (full-color) illustrations for a chapter book I've been working on. I keep these in my desk and look at them now and again. Inspiration for when my mind gets stuck.
|Ten points if you can guess what my book is about.|
He enjoys writing, and he's been working on his own I Survived story. (He loves the I Survived books by Lauren Tarshis.) Today he built a tooth fairy house out of Duplo Legos for his sisters. Yesterday he directed a play with his sisters. He's working on a book about trolls (inspired by our recent troll escapades from yesterday's post). He made himself an ipad out of paper (with all the app icons). And the make-believe scenarios (time travel, Bigfoot, Jurassic Park) he creates and plays with his sisters are impressively detailed.
For a mom who values creativity as much as vegetables and sunshine, this makes me very happy.
