We recently got a book out of the library entitled ‘I am an Artist’ by Marta Altes basically is about a boy who sees himself as an artist, he spends his days creating crazy art at home much to his mothers disgruntlement. He paints on the walls, on his face he re-purposes the kitchen fridge and makes a hole in the wall. All things of a parents nightmare!
Recently I came downstairs to Munashe saying “Look I am an artist”. Munashe had drawn mustache on his face with black pen!
Munashe loves to paint. I remember coming downstairs one morning to these words “Look Mummy we’re painting”. Munashe had reached to the top shelf for some paints. Zori, my daughter was only one at the time. Amazingly they had neatly covered a piece on A4 paper in red paint. Thank goodness I came downstairs when I did!
Another time Munashe hid his face in the cupboard. He popped out, “I’m Spiderman”. He had red crayon all over his face! I think you get the idea. I love the creativity, and despite the mess i wouldn’t have it any other way.
Have a look at this rather cute video of my son at work…
