The creativity of children

I’m always amazed at how creative and imaginative all children can be. I definitely don’t keep every scrap of paper my children bring home from school and daycare (would not be able to move within house due to avalanche of paper) but every now and again I’ll spot a special item that I ferret away as a reminder of a time in their life that is going so quickly. So, as a tribute to Wordless Wednesday, here’s a selection of my favourites:

Do your kids have a creative streak? Which of their creations do you keep and which do you throw away?

    Wow! Very talented children. I just adore the rainbow coloured dresses! Too cute!

      Thanks Penny. Of course, I think they are both genius kids (but what mum doesn’t?). They are both obsessed with rainbow – the brighter, the better!

    I have no idea which ones to keep! I have kept many but must go through them, not looking forward to it.

      I agree Nellbe…every week I promise myself I’ll go through them as they come home but I never end up finding the time. Then it’s a big pile and feels to daunting to tackle 🙂

    Awww, I love the idea of just keeping your favourites!
    Roo isn’t particularly creative I don’t think – whenever we get the pencils and crayons out she’s much more interested in making me draw what she dictates to me. I think she’s more musical…. haha!

      Ha! Whatever works Daisy 🙂 I have a few “joint” works that I’m keeping as well. Thanks for dropping by.
