Art Work

Sophie loves to color! Give her a box of crayons and some paper and you are guaranteed at least 20 minutes of peace and quiet. It is just her thing! :) I think that she has the capability of being artistic when she is older....the interest is definitely there.

Until recently Emma had never really preferred to color. That is was just NOT her thing! Her interests lied elsewhere. Lately though I have been encouraging her to draw more. As everybody knows, drawing leads to writing and she DOES need to learn how to write eventually. :) Instead of sitting at the kitchen table though I have tried to be more creative. We have drawn outside with chalk and in the bathtub with crayons. At first Emma would request that I draw things & when it was her turn she would scribble out of frustration. Ugh. A few weeks ago we turned a corner. She began to draw trains outside on the driveway all by herself! And, two days ago she was drawing Halloween Witches in the bathtub! They had lovely details of eyes, eye brows, nose, mouth, arms, hands, legs and feet. :) I am SO proud of her. This is HUGE progress.
