My 5 yr old often spends all day coloring, cutting and gluing. She draws people, colors and cuts them out and then plays with them. She makes clothes for them, crowns, furniture (then she pulls out the scotch tape......forgot to mention, my girls also have a deep love for scotch tape). Now that I'm posting these pictures, I wish I'd taken more pictures of her past creations-I need to make sure I do that so we can show her what she created when she was younger. Here's a cat she made and cut out and then played with all day-it was her pet and it could fly :) The pink line towards the top is a leash.
Here's a picture she made for me for Mother's Day-me and her-love it!
My 3 yr old is usually right beside her sister, coloring away, but often finds that she has to create right where she is when the inspiration hits her or when mom is out of the room.
Yes, although that looks like a piece of white paper, it's my kitchen wall-yes, that's an outlet down at the bottom. We have quite a few walls in our house with these beautiful pieces of art work. We call her our free interior decorator.
