Learning Laboratory: Drawing Together

4yo and 2yo drawing together

My art-loving children started drawing together this week, and it’s been a lot of fun to watch them collaborate! For whatever reason, they find the partially-used pages of my 2011 planner incredibly inspiring. I enjoy listening to them brainstorm what to draw, and hearing them describe their illustrations to one another!

  1. That’s so sweet! I love when my boys play well together, but, you’re right: doesn’t usually last that long!

    1. Johnny and Lily spent three hours together yesterday, drawing, taping, and cutting while Emma was at kindergarten. It doesn’t usually last THAT long, but it sure was fun to watch!

  2. I love this!
    My kids draw together all the time… on ANYTHING. I particularly love it when the older kids teach the younger kids to draw something new. They even include their baby sister (1 1/2 year old). They always make sure she has crayons and paper and they don’t even get upset when she colors on their drawing. I love it!

    1. That is awesome that they don’t get upset over their baby sister coloring on their drawings!

  3. My kids love drawing together too. Sometimes when the younger one doesn’t feel confident with her abilities to draw a part of her picture her older sister will do that part and they are both happy with the results.

  4. Cute pictures! My kids love to draw or scribble on our wall calendar. Maybe it’s because they see mommy/daddy writing there and they want to copy?

  5. That is precious – I love that you not only have captured it on camera but also will be able to take their first collaborative effort and keep forever as well LD.

    J yesterday did his first ever picture in school (we went to look around one for September 2013!) I’ve got it and added to his memory box

    1. I was very pleased to get the photos – and it was SO fun to watch them work together!

  6. Princess gets inspired by half used books too. It makes me happy because then our half used stuff gets used up.

  7. I am a sucker for taking pictures of my kids drawing together!
    I love how close your family is!
    Your a fantastic mom!
