It was a rainy Saturday morning and four year old Brayden was looking for something to get busy with. He got out his crayons and drawing paper and came to find grandma. He thinks that because I can draw – I am his personal illustrator and coloring book. But instead of me doing all the drawing – we drew and colored together.
First I drew the rocket ship he wanted. Together we drew lots of circles that made the planets and far away stars in space. Then Brayden colored the rocket ship and all the planets – leaving me the dark, dark sky. He knew he left me the ‘big’ job, and was very complimentary about how well I colored. Good to know I can still impress a four year old!
Our one drawing inspired several others, resulting in considerable time spent making art. It was a great time for us together and much better than starting the day with cartoons or chores.
Rain or no rain, have some fun with your little one – or your not so little one.
Draw and impress. Then have some fun filling the sky with whatever your artist can imagine!
