We always tell my daughter that her first word was "pijah." The typical toddler, she said "Mama," "Dada," "oh-oh." But all of a sudden one morning, she pointed to a Degas painting on our wall and exclaimed, "Pijah!" Picture.
No wonder she's such a talented artiste at 6.5-years-old!
No matter how frazzled we are cooking dinner, making lunches, doing laundry, work, putting dishes away..., few things make us stop more than the pictures our kids proudly bring us.
Seeing them put pen/crayon/marker/paint to paper gives us a glimpse into the wonder that is their pure creativity. What follows is a gallery of some of my favourite kinds of kid art.
