Magna Doogle Giraffe

Mom's note: This didn't scan very well. It is a drawing on the magna doodle.

It is a giraffe. I love the picture. The giraffe is drinking water. They have to spread their legs apart and they bend down their head to drink. I accidentally put the head upside down.

Do you know what lives in the hole? An owl. And they didn't know that an owl lives in it and that is why they are standing on the log. But the owl flew away and found a new home. And that's all.

care bear tree

This picture started out as a sticker from the doctor's office on Monday. The sticker came in parts, so M added the arms and the balloons. Then M added a tree and clouds. I like it. I also like the fact that my kids like Care Bears, because I gave them all of mine from Grandma Rita that I got for being good on visits! A legacy of fun little plastic toys. (Sidenote: I still remember being devastated at losing Sunshine Bear in a campground bathroom. ) -Mom

Mommy's note

The following pieces were done today in the car after gymnastics class. I drew rough sketches of what she wanted to draw, and then she created her own work by looking at those sketches. Her drawings are much different than mine! Also, I wanted to note that all of these drawings are small. I can cover each of them with my thumb print.

A bear's face

a car

drawn with crayon... which is annoying because it makes stuff look funny and I can't unrase.

a parachutist

This was inspired by gymnastics. Today we played with a parachute. I asked Mommy how to draw a parachute. She drew a quick sketch of what a parachute looks like when used for jumping and a sketch of a 'chute laying on the ground open (just like at gymnastics!). I thought the jumping-out-of-planes version was more interesting, so I drew a picture of myself jumping!

a map!

Fun with Sharpies

First, the lion. Mommy drew the outline and I colored it in. Notice the green mane and the SCARY red eyes. Grrrrrrrr!

Next, and printout of a photo from the Safari Park. I am feeding my favorite animal, a giraffe. Coloring in photos is always fun.

good tracer

Notice how M used one color near the outlines, then colored in the body. She adapted this from watching E do the "Rock Star" drawing and sea horse coloring.

The original drawing is from a coloring book produced by FCHS art students in the 80's or 90's. Mommy was too afraid to color in it, so now her kids get to.
