Dylan Plays With Pastels

One of the major perks of homeschooling Dylan is that I find myself making time to search out artsy things that I can do with him. And while he’s learning about shading and shapes and color combinations, I’m having a blast doing the stuff right with him.
The other day I was over at Dirty Footprints [...]

Dylan’s Collages

Dylan’s been cutting shapes out of scrapbooking paper and going nuts with tape (he isn’t as fond of the glue stick just yet). He loves creating collages and sticking them up on the walls and windows all over the house (we’ve since asked him to tape his pieces only to wood and windows, not painted [...]

Artwork by Dylan: Flowers and a Shark

We bought a set of twelve small tempera paint jars today, and pulled out the cartridge paper. Dylan sat at the kitchen table and painted some lovely pictures.
Flowers
He painted these flowers for the guests for his upcoming birthday party. We’re having a family party, and he’s very excited, counting the sleeps before the party [...]

Dylan’s Drawings: Envelope with hearts, Pepperoni pizza and Wii veggies

Dylan drew these today and asked me to post them to “the website on Firefox”. I was very happy to see these, because he hasn’t done very much drawing for most of this week. But today he was back to his usual form.
First up is a very sweet envelope with hearts:

Then we have [...]

Mommy & Daddy Kissing

I know … kind of a sappy title, but that’s what Dylan drew! Our little guy was sick today, but with a bit of Vicks Vaporub (which really has worked to ease his cough) he’s fast asleep now and probably already thinking about the “parade” that he’s decided he wants to play tomorrow.
One of the [...]

Dylan Draws People

Dylan’s been missing The Big Draw – he loved seeing his work up on “the website”, as he calls it. So I’ve decided to give him his own category here. Afterall, he does have quite a passionate fan club!
Dylan’s Day Yesterday
Yesterday, Dylan had a busy day. I had to stay home, of course, [...]

Our Big Draw Drawing for Today

This afternoon Dylan and I took a good look at this gel pen carousel I bought at Costco a few weeks ago:

And next thing you know, we were working away together on this picture which we’ve decided would be our Big Draw picture for the day. We worked in a humungous sketch [...]

Today’s Happenings; The Big Draw

I’ve been sitting here thinking about how blessed life can be. Always a wonderful feeling with which to end the day.
Tonight I finally got around to doing something I’ve been procrastinating for a while – and it’s left me wondering, why on earth was I procrastinating?
We buy a lot of cookbooks around here. My husband [...]

Aberfoyle Junction Pictures; Big Draw; 3 Beautiful Things

Here I go again, cramming everything into one post. I mentioned in my previous post that we went to Aberfoyle Junction on the weekend, and as usual, we took a lot of pictures. Dylan wanted me to post some here, so here they are:

As you can probably see, the detail is simply amazing. I didn’t [...]

Creative Kids

We spent the day at Aberfoyle Junction; it’s a model railroad place out in Guelph that’s really amazing. Filling 1500 square feet of space, the layout represents trains and tracks running in Southern Ontario in the 1950s. Every half hour or so, the lights dim and it becomes “night”, and that in itself is such [...]
