Engaging with kids

Yesterday was a chock full fun afternoon at Creative Lab after school. A warm and cool color exercise day and a warm then cool weather day. How did we predict this???

Engaging with the kids, listening to what makes them tick, and seeing their creative bloom engages us adults to notice more and be mindful. We had as much fun creating as the kids and what a chance to relax and just find the joy. I thought you’d like to see their art.

Blake who finished hers. 

Snacks fed the body, art fed the soul.

    Is there any way I could pass for a “kid” so I could enter into the Creative Lab After school
    Program? You are definitely destined to be the coordinator of kids creative, honest,
    expressions. Parents must be so thrilled to have their children participate in this engaging after-school program at YAA.
    Kid at heart, Bernadette

    I hate to admit this, but those kids draw and color better than I. Each was so different, yet using the same concept. What fun they (and you) had!

    Looks like you are having fun with these kids! And the kids look like they are having fun too. Being around kids is a good way to reinvigorate creativity I think. 🙂 Happy weekend and happy Easter. Hugs-Erika
