Again, I am very thankful for the big pile of paper from my aunt.  The Sage drew this pile of faces, plus a few more, right before nap.  He hasn’t drawn many faces, but today he took off.  It was interesting how rapidly they became more complicated.  They had been playing with a magic Santa hat, so he drew one on the red face.  And he was quite excited to draw the feet on the last one.  He looked at me and said ‘feet?’ asking, excitedly if it was ok to draw feet.  Of course!  Draw as many feet as you want!  We have been using Prismacolor pencils or paint for the past few weeks, but I switched out the materials on the dining room table, putting the paint away and adding markers and stamps.  It seems that the markers encouraged him to create differently, in part because they make a bold, yet controllable mark?  Note to self: Keep materials available in a communal space and change weekly.

  1. Love the faces, they are very good ! I don’t know if you want to do a project with colored rice or pasta. You could explain the process of dyeing these items with food dye and alcohol. Let me know if you want any more facts.
