“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” Pablo Picasso
What kind of mum would I be if I didn’t encourage creativity in my own kids.
And as a free-spirited, independent, do-it-my-way’er, how could I not encourage them to forge their own path to live and work intentionally.
To help them consider, not simply that their thoughts, actions and decisions have an impact on their experiences in life – we all know that – but that they can instead, decide what experiences they want in life, then actively plan how to get there.
We’ve had a lot of fun talking about this lately, and while they’re obviously all too young to decide what they want out of life just yet (the tender ages of 14, 10 and 6), I certainly look forward to helping them explore.
Anyway, here’s my daughter Abigail’s efforts at tinkering around with Powerpoint and Camtasia, to create a fun, short video.
You’ll be seeing more of her, I’m sure.
