It is good to remind our children that they are artistic and creative. Creativity is for more than art class!
My son had a project to "do" a poster board about himself.
Instead of just drawing on the poster board, he chose non-white poster board and cut his into the shape of a dinosaur. The little white strips are his bits of personal information about what he likes to eat and his favorite movies.
To top it off, he chose a second sheet of poster board to create the contrasting skin on the dino.
It will be interesting to hear about the reaction his creativity receives. I hope it is positive.
