Creativity from a 5 Year Old
As a mother of two, I was horrified that I would become one of those people that had kid’s stickers on my car windows or a stuffed animal on my dashboard, so I tried to remain a “cool” parent. Limiting art & creativity to certain “spaces”, but stifling my child’s creativity for my own selfish image didn’t seem right either. Guilty, I broke down. Just went with it and watched how far she would take it. The colors, slices of little tiny papers, tape everywhere, and what a mess. But she was delighted and blossoming. I guess it is how your find yourself and your voice, so how could I stop that?
After going thru reels of recycled paper, here’s are some design tips I learned from my daughter:
- More is always better.
- Use color and lots of it.
- There are many meanings of the word “beautiful”
- Rainbows are always cool.
- Everyone has there own style
I try and celebrate her free spirit and desire to create, create and create. Her endless ideas and willingness to experiment inspire me everyday
