Draw with me - Halloween

Big man is nearly 6 and has only just found any kind of interest in drawing and writing. So to do my best with encouraging him, I told him about a competition on This Mummy Loves. He was very excited to take part and has been asking me to get the drawing stuff out after school today.

I just love that he is trying hard and having a go at both drawing and writing at last. He might not be the best, but it is a step in the right direction. Clearly he will become a scientist like Mummy as his spelling isn't great and he insisted labeling his picture!

Here is his picture:



And here is some of his amusing commentary whilst drawing it!

"Mummy I hope that the person that judges has very good eyes so they can see the orange against the black as that's the pumpkin growing. Just so they know I might write down pumpkin growing"

"Not many people will draw bricks on houses, so if I draw bricks I might win..... unless someone draws better bricks.... but I might be the only one that draws a house!"

He was upset that he had written a d instead of a b for bricks. I pointed out that bricks had an r in as he had written bics "There is a silent r in it I guess?" Hmmmmm I wasn't ready to talk about the k too!

Just to clarify big man's picture is of a Mummy trick or treater, knocking on a house made of bricks with pumpkins outside, one of which is growing. In the sky there is a giant star and a moon.

that is adorable that he was explaining about the pumpkins growing and the bricks - so cute! When mine do a spelling mistake like that, I usually point out that it adds to the cute factor by whoever is receiving it and that they really won't mind. If they still seem upset, then I tell a white lie and say that daddy can edit it once it is scanned in on the computer. xxx
