I've spoken before about how there are 'makers' and 'creators', the kid below is definitely a creator.
She comes up with an idea then sits down with pencils, paper, card, scissors, string, sticky-tape and usually glitter, to bring it to life.
Today it was kite making.
One for her...
One for her little sister...
Then, Miss A sees and likes the idea and conjures up her own - she's like me - a maker.
She's able to follow a plan or pattern, but not usually the one to come up with the idea!
Here's their 'artwork' up close, glitter, streamers and of course a smiley face and some repurposed toilet rolls.
Often it means I am left with this...
But I think it's worth it.
PS - excuse the lawns!! A bit of rain and lots of sunshine and it's now growing like a jungle!
