Last night we were streaming photos from our MacBook Air to our TV when the above sunflower photo filled the screen. “That’s a great shot honey,” I said to The Hubs. “Your composition is so interesting.”
“I didn’t take it,” he said. “Bean did.”
Bean looked at me and nodded her head proudly. “I took all of these photos mama!” she said.
We recently gave 5 year old Bean an old camera and have encouraged her to take it with her when we go on outings and take photos of the things she sees.
I find it interesting to look at the things that inspire creativity in my children today (photography and art for Bean, music for Turtle) and imagine if they will still feel as passionately about those things 5 years from now, 10 years, 15, 20.
I’d love to be as creatively free as my 5 year old. She inspires me.
Tell me… What fuel’s your and your children’s creative fires? What are some of your favorite creative activities? Are you good at creative play?
