Looks like Lady Winter has arrived early this year in Vancouver.
My drawing is inspired by the story The Snow Queen from Hans Christian Andersen.
The swirls in the image are inspired by Vincent van Gogh’s painting Starry Night.
It’s beautiful outside. Below is a photo from of our local trails.
Could Have Been Kindergarten
Today my daughter was supposed to start Kindergarten. In the effort to stay positive during this teacher/BC Gov labour dispute, we created a fun project together.
Nature Walk In The Rain
We started the day collecting colourful leaves. Of course, there were many “puddle breaks” along the way.
Beautiful Brown Snail
This was the best wildlife picture from our nature walk. We also counted eleven slugs and one pile of bear poop.
Drawing Seven Leaves
I asked Jade to draw seven leaves across the paper. This would be a guide to help us sort our colourful leaves.
Counting The Seven Leaves
Jade is double checking the amount of leaves she has drawn.
Colouring the Seven Leaves
Finalizing the map that will help us sort our leaves.
Jade’s Final Drawing
This map will help us count and organize the leaves based on colour. As one can see, Jade is still learning to write her numbers.
Matching A Map Out
Jade has sorted where the colours will be placed.
Sorting All The Leaves
Jade is sorting all the leaves she collected from our nature walk.
Stacking All The Leaves
At the end of the day, I added the leaves I collected from our walk together. All the leaves are stacked and ready for the next stage of our project.
My doodle on Grandma’s fridge.
Jade created a fun drawing for Grandma and hung it up on her fridge.
Playing Outside for Jade’s 5th Birthday !!!
Jade draws everyday … from morning till night. Often, she wants to doodle before going upstairs for story time. I asked her about this particular image. She simply stated, “It is a big loving family.”
Both of us exploring pastel chalk drawings at StrongStart.
With the arrival of summer recently, my wife created this wonderful drawing for Jade.
Jade’s been talking about The Lego Movie for months now … Jade’s gone Lego Movie crazy !!!
Jade still isn’t very comfortable using scissors so we brainstormed a project. She really wanted to create something with the Unikitty character (I had nooo idea what she was talking about). After some internet research, we recreated Unikitty’s home in Cloud Cuckoo Land.
Finally, last week we purchased The Lego Movie DVD … and now I finally “get it” !!!
