Daughter and I went outside and made an entire zoo worth of sidewalk chalk animals.
NOT A PETTING ZOO. just a zoo.
She wanted me to draw
a bunny. check
a fish. check
an alligator. check
a dog. check
an elephant. check
a snake. check
yes, snakes are easy. I consider anything I draw to be a success if my daughter can identify what it is. She knew immediately this was a snake.
She also recognized this to be a friendly alligator with razor sharp teeth. And then she colored his teeth. blue-ish white-ish
After I drew all the animals I knew to be identifiable, I moved on to fruit. Daughter would not [WOULD NOT] believe this was a banana. She kept calling it "night time." She thought it was a moon. She was very sure it was a moon, in fact. ok, fine.
so, I drew a moon. She kept calling it a "an-anna" even after I added the stars. Finally, she got the blue chalk and added the sky ... THEN it was "night time."I must take this opportunity to apologize to my college Astronomy Professor. He'd have preferred those stars be in some constellation shape. He also gave me a C. I cried.
