create something

12:08 AM

"Mama, can we create something?" I quickly replied, "Yes!" partly because I felt horrible that I had forgotten to pick her up at school (it sounds worse than it is but I won't explain here) and partly because it just sounded like a fun time with my girl. I don't know what kind of vibes I give off, but honestly I go into overdrive mode with my projects.  I love the little reminders that I need to pause creating for my kids and create with my kids.

christian dior inspired

We were inspired by some Christian Dior paper dolls she got for Christmas and made a fabulous dress using her wire form doll and some fabric scraps. I love her fashion creativity!

being creative

We continued our creatin' this week when I asked her to paint Roman numerals on a clock I received for Christmas. Her medium of choice was actually Pearlescent chalks (I actually like it better). I had her look in the living room and pick out which colors she thought would go well. She did a great job. Not only was it fun and creative but educational as she learned her Roman numerals!


Have you done any creating with your kids this week?
