EVERY CHILD IS AN ARTIST.
THE PROBLEM IS HOW TO REMAIN AN
ARTIST ONCE HE GROWS UP.
I don't know about you all but sometimes I forget to play, to have fun. I was reminded of this when I was playing Play-Doh with my 3 1/2 year old nephew. I was using this contraption that could make the Play-Doh ooze out in different designs (stars, squares, etc.) but my nephew only wanted me to use the setting that made it come out like a thick strand of spaghetti. Why? Because we were making worms. Lots and lots of worms. Hours worth of worms. I made the worms, then my nephew put them into a giant worm pile. The thing was, the worms all went in the pile head first because, apparently, they were scaredy worms. What were they afraid of? Me! According to my nephew they were afraid of me because they thought I was going to smoosh them. (They were right to be afraid. I was going to have to smoosh them because we were running our of Play-Doh and how was I supposed to make more worms....)
I can't speak for the worms, but I had a lot of fun that day. So much so, I might have to ask for some Play-Doh for Christmas this year.
