Following up the art lessons that we have been having, I thought of getting C to do a birthday card for his grandpa since his birthday was around the corner. We glanced through the IPad for pictures that he likes and this is the one he chose. You can read through the artsy tips given by the teachers to help our kids to draw and paint by clicking on this link.
I guided C in tracing the picture. If you look closely, you can see the hands that he drew. He calls them octopus. I didn’t manage to capture the writing part as well but I think he did in an awesome job!
A few of the family members did comment that grandpa looks like grandma instead due to the hair. We had a few good laughs! It doesn’t matter. I believe grandpa loves it nonetheless.
We follow up with the activity with a ‘Let’s talk about’ and ‘Fill-in’the-blanks’ the following day. I do this with C everyday to help him capture these memories as it helps to formulate his thoughts and speech.
