Yesterday, my littlest little guy was very restless.
My "big" kids were doing their workbooks at the table and my little one rejected all my attempts to distract him: water colors, stickers, crayons and markers- he would have none of it.
Wonder of wonders, they worked! He was entranced, and I was relieved to have some peace and quiet.
|My little girl finished her coloring and matching shapes in her work book so she moved to the window.|
She made a big circle and said "Look Mom, I made a sun! and there's you and me under the sun."
Now, I usually resist anything that might make a mess but as I watched them color I remembered the importance of letting them have fun even if it makes a mess. These didn't make a terrible mess but I feel myself turning a corner... a friend once told me that when it comes to arts and crafts, creativity can be measured by how messy you get. Well then... let the creativity begin!
