Our little girl is always drawing, she always has done. Admittedly we have always let her have access to drawing materials so she was scribbling as soon as she could hold a crayon. Her drawings have really developed over time. She has a few books on how to draw animals or insects, etc - would probably be deemed a little old for her to follow but she has a go and really has fun trying. She loves to copy pictures from books she's reading too, this picture is from the book "Fox on a box", this picture is of the trees and the bunting around the forest, fox and other animals and the box is the prize.
After a recent day watching Madagascar (the film) she wanted some pictures to colour in so I printed a few colouring pages off the internet. As well as colouring them in she traced the lines of one picture from the other side and it was perfect - I hadn't realised what she'd done and didn't realise she knew about "tracing". She also copied all of the pictures into her drawing pad and I just love this one of Melman the Giraffe - complete with boxes on his feet as in the film.
Oh and here's a potato craft she did recently at a fabulous library storytelling - she decided she would make a chicken with lots of feathers and a yellow beak and his name would be Licken. This is Licken the chicken, not to be confused with the story Chicken Licken - it isn't that chicken!
However, here is a picture she drew of Chicken Licken and wrote his name.
