Artful Friday- Dino’s

This artful Friday isn’t from my class. Due to the Olympics being here, my classes won’t start until another two weeks. This art however is from my 4 year old. It’s a T-Rex.

Not his finest, I’d say, but it was his choice.

I would like to see something more from him, but that’s the mom/teacher in me. The nurturing mom, needs to let him do what he feels is best. After all its just for some Dino feet. There will be a day when I will cross that line, when to push him to do his best and when to learn to let him find his way. I’m glad I have a few more years before I reach that.

I think he was rushing because he drew it for this: It’s a contest to win the dinosaur feet the little boys in the pictures has on. It’s a bit exciting because when I was reading the magazine to him, he was the one who wanted to enter to win.

It’s his first art contest.

Chirp Magazine is a great starter for little ones. It’s educational and always has fun things to do on the inside. When I saw Dino’s on the cover, I knew it would be coming home with us.

It’s also really fun for him because we are sending snail mail. So he got to pick an envelope, put a stamp on, and he was extra proud to hand it over at the post office.

The hand writing there, that’s actually mine, not his. It may look like a 4 year old writing, but yea, it’s mine. I remember my sisters and cousins siting around practicing there names and writing. Me, no thanks, I would tie my red wagon to the back of my bike and take off through the hood.
So my hand writing suffered for adventure. ha ha

Hope you have a happy Friday and find a little adventure this weekend.

I love the picture. One of my most treasured pictures is of the 10 legged version of our cat at the time that my now nearly 13 year old did when she was at nursery. it makes me smile every time I look at it ๐Ÿ˜€
