Magic Marker Monday

I’m loving Esmé’s self-initiated free art – all very detailed.  Here is her brother, Mr. Potato Head on a whiteboard:

And this is “Gule,” a big big bracelet on one arm and a flower in the other hand, with a few little “e’s” thrown in:
In chalk, here is a pony.  Depending on your perspective.  (That little circle that could be an elephant ear is actually the pony’s head, with a nice mane flowing down.  And that long thing that could be a trunk is actually a leg.  In case you were wondering.)

And this?

Isn’t it obvious?

Have you figured it out yet?

Try again!

OK, OK.  This, my dear friends, is the flight of a hummingbird.  (We read Little Green by Keith Baker a few nights earlier, in case you were wondering…)

I love the artwork of children. They are treasured masterpieces.

Love it!! Just think we could take pictures of all these and print out an album of our favorites! Then we will not have the guilt factor of throwing them away or erasing them!
