I have a mission for today – to reorganize Anna’s art box. It’s overrun by loose paper scraps, stickers, little bits of this and that, and she didn’t seem to be particularly interested in it this week. It seems that when she has way too many options, she is overwhelmed and not interested in going for art project on her own. She does have rare moments, however, when she is in the mood for truly open-ended art. That’s how this “submarine for her school” came to be. Anna really wanted to take it to school, so maybe she will bring it for her sharing time next Friday.
We are trying to spend more time outside while the weather allows it. On Friday I caught daughter completely preoccupied with her “designs” on the driveway. I like how carefree she is when she is really focusing on something and how she always has a story to go with her drawings when she is in the flow. This time it was about T-Rex hunting other dinosaurs and then eating their eggs :)
