My Creative Daughter

I don't usually talk about my kids on the internet as a conscious choice, but sometimes rules were made to be broken.

My 6 year old daughter is also very creative and loves trying out new skills. What I find very exciting about her is that she can have an idea and follow the creation of it through to the end, even if she finds out halfway through that her idea can't function as she originally thought. She will then adjust her creative process, sometimes asking for help, sometimes figuring it out on her own.

A while ago when I was busy with my soaps, she decided it was time to have a birthday party for her penguin. She made her penguin a birthday crown, an box to package the presents given to the penguin as well as two gifts.

This first picture is taken by me. The other three are taken by her.

The little speaking bubble says, 'I'm having a birthday'. That too was her idea - she had the bubble already cut out and told my husband what to write in it. (She starts school in August)

Here is her birthday box, complete with a bow drawn on the top. Also, an old vitamin box has been turned into a cake, with the label 'kake' so that there is no misunderdanding by us adults.

What did the lucky penguin get? S/he got a car that s/he can play with.

As well as a scarf to keep him/her warm during the cold days of spring. (And it snowed two days the first week of May.... so this could come in handy. Good thinking on her part).

Already she wants to be like me, and create something to sell on Etsy. Luckily I've been able to tell her she has to wait until she's 13 (a white lie? I'm not sure as I have not check it out), but that she can use this time to get really, really good.

She's satisfied with this for now.
