If you’ve been hanging around here for a while now, you’ll know that I occasionally post on the curiosity, ingenuity and inventiveness of my children. Truly, I think witnessing the burgeoning creativity of a child is one of the greatest honors of parenthood. If you’ve also read my book, you’ll understand how healing and rejuvenating celebrating a child’s imagination can be (in my opinion and experience).
This past week, while keeping our daughter home from school for her THIRD BOUT OF HEAD LICE (and the school’s principal insists it’s not coming from school…hhhmmm…) the three kids and I just spent time together…playing…inventing…exploring. In a fit of creative exuberance, my daughter came up with this:
No, these ain’t no Marc Jacobs or Gucci…but wow, was I impressed! They reminded me of the boiled wool slippers from Kurdistan I saw the other day at an art show. Just…not quite so…waterproof.
What’s your favorite invention that one of your kiddos came up with?
