My dad came over today with crayons and paper for the kids. He has started a little tradition ( 2nd year running) of having each of his grandkids draw a self portrait and then a family portrait, pets included.
He keeps the drawings and when they have finished, he shows them last years work. The kids got a good laugh at what they had drawn last year.
What a great idea this was. Simple, yet it made the kids feel special to know that someone cares about them and loves what they can create.
