One idea I have loved is to incorporate family art time. This can be anything from a set-aside art night or taking just a few minutes a day to incorporate drawing/sketching/painting into every day life. Soule suggets everyone drawing the same object together and talking about their work afterwards. This got me thinking and I decided to purchase a sketchbook from Borders and have one place where all of Maggie's artwork can be stored and will grow with her overtime. No more stacks of artwork in file folders. Maggie has enjoyed her new book! I have also used the sketchbook this week after our morning walks or before dinnertime (when things can be a bit choatic). It's a simple way to say, "Draw a picture of something you observed on our walk," or "Draw your favorite memory of today."
