The four-eyed monster

January 9, 2014

Exploring her creativity is a role POD takes very seriously – she loves drawing, sticking and painting. This week she coloured between the lines for the first time.

The people she draws freehand now have a face, arms and legs. Pictures of Daddy are often a cross between Tin-Tin and a potato. Mummy is a smaller version of Daddy but with hair just on one side of the head. POD’s interpretation of herself is usually egg-shaped. Everyone must have socks so their feet don’t get cold.

POD celebrated her third birthday on Christmas Day. She received an array of new paint and craft kits which have been tested out over the festive period.

POD also got the opportunity to make a monster. Aptly named “monster” he has four eyes as two just weren’t enough!

    POD is an absolute genius and we fully expect to see her work being displayed in the Tate Modern. Tracy Emmin should be quaking in her shoes. This is adorable and we at KidGLloves love it #MiniCreations

      Thank you Mary – she gets a lot of practice at nursery and home. It’s not to say she doesn’t make a mess too :)

    I love POD, so glad everyone has socks, there is nothing I hate more than cold feet!
    The four eyed monster is fantastic, such a clever girl :)

      The socks are really important! Quite funny too given she spends a great deal of time taking hers off! She did so well with her monster, we must make some more :)

    Aww so cute! Well done POD! Little T has yet to learn to colour within the lines. But like you loves painting too :)

    • Reply Charly Dove January 10, 2014 at 1:38 pm

      POD isn’t colouring in-between the lines all the time though. Just when she has some patience! I can just imagine T loves painting – it’s such good fun :)

    She is adorable, I love the concentration in that top pic! The one of her painting makes me squirm just a little bit….I’ve never been good with mess! x

      Thank you Suzanne. Painting is great but very messy – washable paints are awesome though. All cleared up in minutes :)

    Love this – monster is fab :) The painty hands with such a fierce look of concentration are good too! #PoCoLo

      POD takes creativity very seriously as you can imagine! This was her first monster, the second only has a body so far…!

      POD absolutely loves being creative! Give her a pot of things to stick and she’s well away – she loves the glue most of all!

      That sounds like such good fun – we have a snowman to make too. For a competition at nursery :)

    I love watching the concentration of a preschooler drawing and I love watching M and how the characters she draws have evolved over time to look more human ( sort of). Beautiful photos as per #PoCoLo

      Thank you Luci – she has so many faces, love the concentrating one :)

      She does love colouring, sticking and painting. She does a fair bit at nursery and at home when we can’t get outdoors :)

  • Reply Faded Seaside Mama January 11, 2014 at 6:42 pm

    She’s not just a pretty face is she?! Love the monster and that she sees herself as egg-shaped – there was a song once that had the line “Happiness is egg-shaped” so I think that’s a good way to be! Lovely photos and great monster! #PoCoLo
