Rainbows and Stick People

The quality of Noah's artwork has improved dramatically over the past few months, along with his letter writing skills. He is writing his name really well all on his own now, and takes the chance to practice each morning on the kid's sign-in sheet at daycare.

Yesterday, Mark played a game with Noah, asking him to draw something and then Mark would guess what it was. Noah chose to draw a person - too cool! I think that it looks a little like Mike Wazowski from Monsters Inc :-)

Last Friday was Rainbow Dress Up Day at daycare for Noah's head teacher's last day. As we were a little short on colourful clothes, I decided to get a little creative and make some rainbow accessories - a rainbow necklace, wand (which evolved from the leftover paper after making the necklace) and a rainbow to go on his back. Mark said the teachers mentioned when he picked Noah up how impressed they were with our efforts. A little bit of fun goes a long way!

It was also good practice for me to recall ROYGBIV (colours of the rainbow). Even though Noah and I had seen a rainbow outside earlier in the week (which hasn't happened for ages), I still had to look up on Google images to remember quite how the indigo and violet shades should look!  How long has it been since you made or drew a rainbow?!

Fabulous! I have a great 'lift the flap' Noah's Arc book and at the end there's a beautiful rainbow with the words, 'To remind us of God's everlasting love'. They are a favourite in our house and I think a lot of children love painting them.
