I love making things. If I could swing it, my job would allow me to work remote so that the two hours a day I spend commuting could be reallocated to creative pursuits. Although that hasn’t happened (yet! maybe one day but probably not but I’ll just hold out a little hope) that doesn’t mean we are lacking in our arts and crafts. In fact, we have paper, crayons, markers, chalk, and now watercolors all available to Aidan for play. Aidan does a lot of adorable things, but watching him “draw” is high on my list.
We decided that watercolors would be a fun little art exercise for Aidan. I had this beautifully planned in my mind where he would make some wonderful paintings for us and violins would play while unicorns hopped around our kitchen. That definitely was not how this happened. We had to beg Aidan not to spill or drink the water and he pretty much skipped the colors, opting instead for the black. I’m not sure what this says about his personality but I did manage to get some photos during the violin playing/unicorn part.
