Be Creative

art table

Do you ever stand over your child as they do an art project, encouraging them to stay in the lines, use certain colors or to not make a huge mess? I often catch myself doing all of these things while my little guy is trying to express himself. But, when I stand back quietly and let his imagination take control, I get the most beautiful masterpieces. I learn a lot from watching my kids. Their minds are free, unrestricted and know no boundaries. Next time you sit down to do something creative, try looking at it from a child's perspective. You may see a totally different point of view!

    Reminds me of one of my all-time favorite quotes:

    "Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up."
    ~Pablo Picasso
