This morning my 3-year old asked me to help her with her "art projects," - she loves her artwork! Our home is "wallpaper-ed" with artwork from Jayne...drawings, scribbles, collages and sketches that she has created over the past few years. Yes, years. She's loved her crayons since she was one. Give her paints and a brush, she's Picasso. She even loves to paint rocks - which, one day will be part of our garden walkway.
And how could I forget glitter glue?! A staple in our home!
Crayons, however, have to be her favorite. I realized this morning just how much fun it is to pick up a crayon and scribble. No patterns, no lines, just start scribbling! I think we may be telling kids to "stay in the lines," a little too much these days. "Don't go outside of the lines here," we keep telling them. But what's SO wrong with going outside of the lines every so often?
We went outside the lines this morning and made all sorts of fun stuff and, for a moment, I felt like a kid again too.
Being childlike is fun and going outside of the lines is fun too.
Maybe, just maybe, we'll have some more creative kids, if only we allow them to go outside the lines a little more often...
