This is a different kind of children's activity, but its probably one of the most rewarding ones we've discovered in a while.
- Try to gather multiple generations in one room. If physically that is not possible - Skype or FaceTime it!
- Have your child draw their bedroom
- Draw your own childhood bedroom
- Ask a grandparent (or great aunt or great uncle) draw their childhood bedroom.
- Then what? Talk about it!
- How are the pictures the same?
- How are the pictures different?
- What colors do you have in your room compared to that of grandma / grandpa?
- What from mom/dad's room would you want in your room?
So even if your little one doesnt make it long past the drawing - save all 3 pictures, there will be a day in their future when these drawings will be cherished.
Share with us your drawings using #MyRoomYourRoom!
