After I was inspired by the things I mentioned in my post, Enjoying Early Childhood, I have wanted to allow LM to have more opportunities for Free Art. Most of the time we have a specific craft we are working on. Occasionally we paint or color just for fun. But I thought it would be fun to one day get out ALL of our arts and crafts supplies and just let him go at it! I thought it would be a fun way for him to just be as creative as he wanted to be.
I haven't done that yet, but this was a step closer. I cut out a big clover using construction paper and then got out all our markers, crayons, colored pencils to let him color it however he wanted to. He chose to mostly work with the pencils and markers, but it was fun to just watch him CREATE!
