It's RESULTS DAY! What did you create? We had fun with our designs after breakfast this week. It takes a simple 5 minutes (ofcourse not mine though) and I'm always amazed at how ideas hit the paper so quickly for the kids. It is a fun way to start the day before school! Find VAMPIRE KID, ABE LINCOLN, DANCING HIPPO and more below. Enjoy.
I had a tough time with the next shape. There are moments when I get caught up in wanting to have the very best idea in the world. So very very great, that if I can't think of that idea - I stop quickly in my tracks! Instead of moving forward, I move backward. Accomplishing squat. Does that ever happen to you?
I have to remind myself occasionally that this, right here, is...a playground. Any character can play because we all just want to have fun. And that is what being creative is all about!
Here's a look at my redo shape when I thought a tree hat looked too silly on my original design. I went back to a familiar bird body but I still wasn't happy. After more pushing, my Ostrich was morphing into a Tree Pop (notice the clenched hand starting to form around the stick shape).
And than I remembered...this is not right! Who cares if its silly? Or completely unheard of or totally impossible. Its just, an idea. So, here's my character named, "Seed", who notices a tree has sprouted out of nowhere one day on her head.
She is totally harmless, wouldn't you say? Back to the rest!
I decided to pick PENGUIN FINDS A SKATEBOARD to color up. I thought it was a great story starter and kind of reminded me of an earlier skateboard owner...
Thanks for stopping by!
