My own little artists

Hope this update finds everyone doing well. The kids have been very busy at school doing a lot of artwork and pictures. So, I thought I would take some pics of their artwork to share.

So, this first picture below was done where the kids had to pick out pictures that reminded them of their family. So, this was what Jack picked out for all of us. I could not believe it when I saw 1) the man with the dear for Chad, 2) how big Ally is and in the center of the page and 3) the picture of Meggan. So, I asked Jack why did you pick that picture for Meggan and he said because she is always crabby and crying. Isn't that special. That is all I can say.

The next day at school Meg did the same project. See below for what she picked. And of course Meggan's image is the biggest one on the page. No self esteem issues there you can see. I asked her if she thought I looked like the picture she picked for me and she said "No, I could not find one that looked like you." There you have it.

I thought this one was really cool. The kids took marbles and rolled them in paint and then used them to paint on the paper. I will definitely have to try this with them. In Meggan's class they had taken race cars and drove the wheels over the paint and used the wheels to paint on the paper. I don't have that picture yet to show, but it was neat too.

Instead I have this picture that Meggan painted. Interesting how all of the colors are kept separate and that she used so many colors. It says a lot about her personality. She is definitely like her mom.

And finally I end with something that I thought was soo cute and funny. This is a picture that Jack made of himself. They cut out the paper and then glued it together to look like themselves. I thought it was just so great and I always love the smiley faces he does.
