Winter art

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Easy ways to make kids happy

Yesterday I wrote a list of words (dog, cat, house, mouse) and asked Sarah to incorporate them into a picture. She balked at the idea, and rather unwillingly proceeded to draw a dog, a cat, a house and a mouse. But it was practically an illustrated list as there were no other details. I asked her what she wanted to draw instead.

 “I’m going to draw the best picture ever!”

And this is what she came up with. (Click to enlarge)

I want to move to your house so that I can do art. That is all.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark. We have two daughters: Emma (19) and Sarah (17). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
