The Little Ones love nothing more than being let loose with some paper and drawing materials, they are at their happiest being creative and allowed to get covered in pen and paint or taste a bit of crayon (yes, Little 2 , I mean you!).
Little 1 comes home with all sorts of things from pre-school, she recently made a train from a tissue box and a couple of loo rolls, it was actually very good. There are mountains of pictures, colourings and lots of cutting, sticking and emerging writing too.
Little 2 did a great picture on the easel at stay and play at Little 1's preschool the other day too, she stood there for ages picking colours and really concentrating on what she was doing, she drew her first recognisable circles and said 'I draw circles, mummy'.
I have a memory box for each of the girls where I have kept things like their first babygro, birth cards, first shoes and more, alongside all these keepsakes are the best of their pictures, cards they have made and other creations that a mummy just has to keep. I hope one day we'll look through the boxes together when they are all grown up.
