"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

SHOW AND TELL: Mirror Image

Today, the older two boys went to the movie with Grandma (my MIL) and Gabe and I spent the time reading, playing Ms. Pacman, and painting. I showed Gabe how to make mirror image paintings. These are the mirror image paintings I did (all clickable for bigger viewing)...
And, this was Gabe's best mirror image painting...

To see what everyone else in class is bringing to SHOW AND TELL, take a trip to visit the Miss Mel, Goddess of the Infertility Blogosphere.

Great idea. Can't wait til Min Man can do more creative things. Now he just like to peel the paper off the crayons.

Lollipop Goldstein said...

Look at you, so crafty :-)

Did he have to tell you afterward what he saw in the shapes?

Miriam said...

How cute - what a fun activity to share! Did you find shapes in them?

Lavender Luz said...

I love them! So random yet orderly.

Awesome. It kinda looks like Gabe made a bunny... it's blue. Or I could be having an inkblot moment ;)

Krystal said...

Those are so fun to do. My little guy is a little too young to get into that sort of thing right now, but I look forward to doing it with him in the future!

Jen said...

those are great, the only thing Morris paints are furniture and walls lol

WiseGuy said...

Oh God, you totally reminded me of school days (we used to do that like crazy then), and an unopened sketch book, water colours and new brushes...

Tell Gabe that in his painting I see a Yogi meditating...seriously!

What a good way to connect with children!

Those are so awesome! I am going to have to steal this idea for when the kidlets are bored . . .

Thanks for sharing!
