Creative Time

So here we are at the start of the 'Summer' holidays. A time i dread to some extent but i have a list of 'creative' ideas of one sort or another so I'm hoping that helps. The weather has been stinking hot which is never my cup of tea so suddenly the idea of spending time at the park in this heat is pretty off putting. So far bar the weekend we have had two days spent at home. Yesterday we largely spent all day at home bar a walk into town to get some necessities.

I found a list of creative prompts on Pintrest 25 Days of Drawing and Journalling and i thought they would be a good source of ideas should we need them so yesterday i put it to my son and he was quite enthused. He went with 'Favourite Cartoon Character' and what followed was an abundance of drawings.

Here are just a few of them and not the first one he did lol

I went with 'A Colourful Bird' and of course this is what followed....

I introduced Brett to my watercolour pencils which he attempted to treat his crayons the same but as i explained water only works with my 'special' pencils and certainly not with crayons. All in all it was a most enjoyable bit of time.

Later in the afternoon he spent a short time in 'his' new paddling pool, recently acquired second hand from a friend, a good size for our 7yr old and perfect for warm days although i did peg his towel either side of the washing line in order to try and create a little shade. Sometimes the most insignificant things can be a great source of amusement if only for a short time and time spent together is of course 'priceless' :)
