Jade says her funny doodles are “rascals” and friends.

Their friendship is based on “joking around” and smiles.

I asked for “Pressed Pants” not “Plants” !!!

Pressed Plants / Drawing

All joking aside, Jade and I had a blast at StrongStart yesterday.

StrongStart is a FREE early education program in BC, Canada.

The top drawing is a fun doodle from our pressed plants (shown below).

Jade really loved being in the trails and picking leaves and flowers.

And I really liked drawing from our exploration.

This exercise helped me focus on unique details and shapes of our local plants.

Early this morning, I saw an amazing snail during my walk.

When I arrived home, I told Jade all about it.

Instantly, she wanted to draw the snail with a bunch of friends.
