This morning was greeted by my little Mr pulling out a dinosaur book saying he had resaearch to do. He opened the book at a protoceratops and wanted to draw it, we were both excited when we remembered Bix from Dinotopia was a protoceratops (Joy!). He wasn't sure where to begin with his drawing and frequently I find myself offering too much information and he loses ownership of his project so I brought out a great bit of children's art from his room, How to Draw a Dragon. I started him off with a big egg shaped body and deliberately stepped away.
Today his inspiration was falling like snowflakes and each idea unique and beautiful. He ran and grabbed a children's encyclopedia and searched through until he found the page on snowflakes. So snowflakes it was. I am looking forward to helping him turn these into little decorations.
