We come into this world with a desire to create. It is our job as mothers not to stiffle that creativity in our children but to encourage them to create. Isn't it hard though, at times, when they are making BIG BIG messes, when they are ruining their once nice shirts with glue and paint, when they are begging you to help them. When I began to feel this way my hubby always lovingly reminds me "She's just like you Jen, she just "has to" be creating!" I'm going to do better and not get so uptight when my daughter asks to use "THE BERNINA", or when my son wants to paint rocks. Just some thoughts off the top of my head.
My oldest made me these adorable magnets to display their school work under. Each one is attached to a clothespin. How adorable are these! Seriously so creative. No tracing or looking at anything just pure talent. I Love them! Thanks for making these for me my girl!
I'd love to hear your thoughts on letting your children create.
Link'n up with darling Jen again - go over and check out the party!
