Drawing skateboards

We spent a large chunk of today outside: playing, drawing and football! It’s warm and not humid at the moment so embracing all the time outside.


Whilst I was working on my Latin they got on with drawing. It was interesting seeing how their drawings developed through copying and helping each other. Zoey told me she was drawing a skateboard:


Nomi decided she would draw skateboards too. One for her, Zoey and Daddy. She outlined and then colored them in.


Both girls were happily looking at each other’s drawings, and are not in the least bit bothered by copying at this age. Zoey went to draw again and Nomi told her it needed four wheels so Zoey drew these skateboards:


It’s really nice seeing them work together yet separately.

    Those are great! My 10yo gets very upset when he feels his 5yo sister is “copying” him, yet he is often inspired by me (or even her, sometimes!). I use the word inspired, not copying, and everybody’s work is so much richer when the inspiration is encouraged and allowed.
