Okay, I had to post the artwork the kids did today. It was too good not to! I'm a mom, I'm allowed to think my children are the most brilliant and creative kids in the world. (You can click on any of these pictures on the blog to make them bigger.)
Kaity's imagination has no bounds! She created this picture today because she had all these cat-themed stickers. She didn't want to waste them by just sticking them to stuff, so she made a "Cat Shop" out of them.
This is Joe's self-portrait, which needs a bit of explanation in order to be fully appreciated. First, notice the usual features -- eyes, nose, mouth, legs, hair. Why do his arms look funny, you ask? Because he also drew in his muscles! How cute is that? The object in his middle, between his arms, he informed me, is his heart (upside down). The upside down "U" shape near his eyes I figured was his ear. He told me it was his "red eye" -- which is what he called his black eye! He still has a little scar on his cheekbone where he hit it.
