The little girls are keeping me doubly busy lately. Busy includes but is not limited to:
1. Unrolling the toilet paper in all 3 bathrooms
2. Cutting a hole in a pair tights
3. Drawing on the kitchen table
4. Helping Mommy in her recent endeavors to create more art or mess, whatever you want to call it
I read a review of this art book on Vincent Van Vogh that said that it sparked their toddler's interest in art...After I got it I was skeptical b/c it was quite wordy and I was afraid that Libby would get bored with it. Quite the contrary happened though, Libby loved it. We spent last week doing projects that reminded us of good ole Vinnie.
I loved this activity. While Maggie is showing some real promise at having a bit of artistic capability, I have never been able to interest Libby much, from the first time I handed her a crayon, her reaction has generally been "Ehhhh." Something about learning about the artist and seeing the art that he made, plus using Mommy's super cool art supplies got her creative juices flowing and she was totally into this:) This last picture was taken after I cleaned up Maggie and told Libby we were done. She told me that she wasn't finished and needed more time!
This made me happy.
More time granted.
Here's to creativity.
