At Mister B’s art group at the local museum this week the theme was boats. We walked around the exhibition displaying various ships and vessels from years gone by and I have to say Mister B loved it. He was pointing out all the flags and other parts of the ships he recognised and even found a huge boat that he decided was a pirate ship!!
We then went back to the crafty room to make a boat picture make up of coloured paper stuck on to a boat outline. He thoroughly loved getting his fingers mucky with the glue stick and pressing down the paper shapes. And then all the children in the group proudly walked around the ground floor of the museum showing off their boats – so cute!!. I’m so pleased that Mister B’s crafty side is coming out as he wasn’t so keen at first unlike his big sister who is the crafting queen of the house!!
In my experience boys are so much harder to get interested in crafts than girls. The girls are constantly sticking and drawing even now as teenagers yet it’s like pulling teeth trying to get the boys to do anything creative that’s not music or game related.
Agree that boys are never as crafty as girls but pleased that he’s now interesting in picking up the glue stick and being a bit more pro-active in the group as for the first few months he just sat and sulked saying he wanted to go home!! I’m glad I didn’t give in and stop going as Miss M went for nearly 3 years and really enjoyed it. I think it’s a good little group that exposes little ones to something a bit different but they get to have fun too!!
Definitely. It looks like a great group and he looks very proud of his boat! 😀
Great crafting skills here
Thank you!! He loves glueing and sticking.
