My Creative Kids

I was blessed with two beautiful, healthy, funny, kind, and very creative children. At an early age I let them "do crafts" every day. I say crafts because I don't know what else to call them. I guess you could say I let them make "messes". I never really believed that we should show our kids "what" to make but give them the materials and see what they create. It has been fun to watch and see how each of their talents have grown over the years. Zoe, my oldest, who is now 13 (boy, do I feel old) created her version of a Picasso when she was just 5, sold her first painting at 8, and now spends her free time sketching clothing designs that she has created. Rowan, my youngest, who is now 9 shows her creativity in different ways. Yes, she can draw well. I always can pick her art work out in class before I read the names. But the way she shows her creativity is by finding unusual ways to use things. She has the ability to turn any piece of garbage into something pretty neat. She also has recently taken up photography. Any animal, rodent or bug that comes into our yard gets it's picture taken.
Here are a few of my favorites.

Looks like you have some very talented kids! I'm just now trying to learn to make clothes and I'm almost 30, and your 13 year old is designing them! That's so awesome. :)

Hey there-
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yours is beautiful!! I can tell we have lots in common, right down to the creative kiddos! The one time I stayed in Ohio, I was 12 and saw a tornado....Got to go to Cedar Point too. I hope spring gets to your house soon!
