Have you ever had a moment in your parenthood journey, where your child had their heart set on doing something and you had to get the stuff for them to do it but you were busy and you yell “just go do something else” or “use what you have” or “not now, I’m busy.”
Think about it, have you ever done that. Well, I had a moment last week, where I was tempted to do that.
Usually we don’t have all our children’s toys down at once. So they have to come ask us to get things for them, when they want to use them. This could be quite inconvenient at times, but it helps minimized huge kid messes later. My five year old son wanted to play with his Mega Bloks. I was tempted to say all of the above, but I said ok and took down the Mega Bloks. A while later, he came to me gleaming with pride and excitement and showed me this.
He followed the instructions in his guide book and made it all by himself. He was so proud of himself. I could have almost stolen that moment away from him.
I felt very happy that I didn’t.
That seemed to spark a creativity fire, because he made many more creations. See below and feel free to pin these pics. I’m a very proud momma.
This is his collage masterpiece (he also loves to cut, draw and glue) using Melissa & Doug Scissor Skills Activity Pad, scissors, glue, markers and poster board.
My eight year old daughter made this Owl and the framed bible-verse below (she is also extremely artistic too) using A Beka Book (Curriculum) Art Projects 3 book (Third Grade), scissors and glue.
I am very proud of my artistic children. Feel free to share your post about anything your kids or you have created, that you are proud of. Have a blessed week. I would also love it, if you comment on this post, your comments mean a lot to me.
