I do not credit myself with being particularly creative or artistic. I like to scrapbook and that is the extent of my creativity. I am unable to draw or cut a straight line, and as you see from my picture, I can’t hang pictures in a straight line either. Well, for Christmas my girls got a giant box of Crayola art supplies. They love it. They create pictures for me every day. Then they make works of art at school too! So to say the least I have an abundance of one-of-a-kind artworks lingering around my home. I have these wonderful Lil Davinci frames that S got me 3 years ago that frame the artworks, and holds up to 50 sheets of paper per frame. This is not to say that I don’t have pictures taped all over my kitchen fridge and cupboards, because I do! Last week I had to empty out the frames for the first time because they were full. What do I do with all of these pictures? I kept a couple from each child to put into their scrapbooks, but I still had a ton of pictures. Then I remembered the Art Portfolios Aunt S had gotten the girls for Christmas. I debated it for a minute, because the girls have access to the portfolios. But I did it any ways. I did this while the girls were at school. When they got home from school it took them all of five minutes to notice their pictures in their portfolio’s. Of course I put the wrong art work in the wrong portfolio. (In my defense they are all the same and there was nothing in them, =who they know who’s was who’s I don’t know!) Now they take out works of art, and they play with them, like they are actual artists. yesterday they were playing “Artist”. They were taking turns truing to convince each other to buy their art. They were using words like “gallery, on display, one of a kind, unique, use of color, mixed medias” I was impressed. Then they actually were swapping pictures with one another. I would of never imagined that letting them play with their pictures would create an afternoon game for them.
