There is a fab little competition (actually it’s a rather big) over on the Tots100 blog and it involves getting your children to draw a picture of a whale. Fab I thought …
So over dinner I talked it over with the girls, setting them up for an afternoon of collage creativity. I had visions of a fantastic blog starting with some shots of us looking at whales on the internet to give them some ideas. They would then sketch their ideas on to paper and transfer those into a collage.
RaRa was absolutely, definately, positively, “are you sure you understand mumma?”, NOT GOING TO BE JOINING IN.
Luckily, RoRo and eldest were hugely excited and planned to make a picture together.
They ran upstairs to wash their hands and that was the last I saw of them.
There was no discussion. No browsing the internet looking for images. No talk about different whale species. And no input from me!
This is the finished picture (it will become a collage tomorrow) ….
