From scribble to shape

There is this amazing moment with a childs drawing skills where what was once just plain scribbling on paper seems to overnight  develop a coherency. Last week Mia was drawing pictures that consisted of up and down, round and round, and occasional spots which all meant a lot to her, but not a lot to us. Then the other day she drew pictures, real ones. They were of people, notably Reuben and herself, and had bodies, legs, feet, arms, mouths, eyes, and noses. She had to come back to her one and add ears, “really really big ears”

    Loving the big ears! I read somewhere that young children draw the body parts that are most important to them really big. Mia is obviously listening really hard these days!

    I love looking at children’s drawings. It’s so neat to watch the progression from scribbling to drawing. I still have a drawing on my fridge of the first people my daughter drew.
