Photobucket

The topic of Open-Ended Art festival this week was crayons. Technically, it was supposed to be yellow crayons, but we only had a tiny travel pack of crayons here with 3 colors. Anna is not a big fan of coloring and uses crayons only for drawing. On the positive note, she drew a lot this week using every implement in the house – pencils, pens, markers, highlighters and even crayons (she usually prefers markers to crayons). Here is what I photographed for an open-ended art:

She used two colors (something new for her), and the thing in the middle is supposed to be a mountain. A dot on the mountain is Anna who is stuck on the mountain. And an oval in the bottom left corner is a rescue helicopter that mama pilots to come and get her off the mountain.

cute story for her drawing you need to log that on the back or something so you don't forget! we didn't do yellow either since it didn't show up well on the rocks they covered over it with another color!

I love the story she narrated to go with her drawing!

I cannot believe she is the same age as Meghan! We've only had a couple of good drawing experiences, and our crayon drawing for this was not so good!

So cute. She has quite the imagination. My children are not really fans of crayons either. I have read that on a lot of blogs. I wonder why they all seem to prefer markers?

Bless her heart--this is sweet and she did a good job. Hanna and Joe did not want to use yellow this week either--oh well. It's "Open Ended", right?! I was just glad they happily (they really just meaning Joe) agreed to use only crayons:-).

She is such a smart, creative girl with a super imagination! You are doing such a great job teaching and encouraging her to grow in every way!

Very cute...Emily is not a fan of crayons either. The suncatchers we made excited her much more than drawing with crayons. To bad the suncatchers are so much messier to make!! We usually just use markers...once she tried them she didn't want anything to do with anything else!

M&M likes markers over crayons as well. I'm sadly not participating in Open-ended art because I'm trying to simplify my life and not get too many things going each week that I feel I have to do. I love seeing everyone else's ideas and will probably do them in the future when time allows.

Cute picture. I love that she tells you what is going on in her picture. Aubrey also loves markers over crayons.

I love the story she told - hilarious! And you must've felt great to be the rescuer and a helicopter pilot, ha! She did a great job and it sounds like she has had a lot of fun experiences on your vacation!
