-Ms. Frizzle, The Magic School Bus
My 9Year Old - His passion is for Robots!
My 6 Year Old - His passion is for Old War Planes
Art and children; The two are a perfect match. There's NOTHING that makes me happier than being with children who create with their little hands and big hearts. It's so precious, when they ask, "What should I do"? I usually just tell them, "What ever and however you want!" For some it brings on a bit of anxiety, others welcome the freedom. It's all about the mess and learning from it! That's why I LOVE Ms. Frizzle.
Ms. Frizzle is kind of my hero ... even though she's a cartoon character; I've always admired her famous phrase "Take chances, make mistakes, get messy!" I personally would have put "get creative" in there, but I'm happy with the positive messages that she constantly quoted to her classroom.
I wanted to share with you the greeting cards that my 9 and 6 year old are making that we have been listing on my etsy shop. Both have sold one set each! They drew their pictures and I photocopied the originals onto a thicker stock so we could prepare for watercolor. They painted most of their characters, but they told me to "Pretty them up".
This has been a great experience for all of us. Just today, my 9 year old has been working all day on necklaces and bracelets and told me he wants to have an ETSY shop by end of day Sunday.
Hmmm, we need to talk more...
