Day 6 of 31 #SOL16

Today was room cleaning day. I really should have taken before and after pics. It was that frightening. It's funny to me how kids can wreck a room so quickly! As my kids get older they get better and better at organizing their "stuff." It's not perfect but it is better. I find that almost every time they go clean their room they find some new way to display something or set something up. My son has a pet lizard in his room. He has a stool placed in front of the aquarium so he can sit and watch him. Today the stool took on a new purpose. It is now the art stool. He took some of his favorite clay creations and displayed them on the stool.
He wants to be an artist when he grows up. He loves making and creating things. I love this about him. He loves sketching and drawing as well but clay has been a more recent passion for him. It was all he wanted for Christmas. I hope his curiosity and creativity continue to grow in the arts. I told him it looked like he had already run out of room, he was going to need a gallery soon!


  1. My kids do the same... usually a lego set up somehow -- but so fun to find! :-)

  2. How fun to see what your child created. Actually, he doesn't have to wait until he grows up to be an artist. He one one now. Thinking of what he wants to make and then making it. Bravo!
    Is any of his art work for sale? I would like to purchase the little green thingy by the middle of the snake. And, of course, I would also pay for postage.

  3. Sigh, I call myself a writer, and I forgot to proof read what I wrote. He is one now. Not, he one one now. Oops.

  4. Wow! Those clay creations are great! It's fun to watch your kids develop their own style and skill. I think you should build a gallery room.

  5. Awesome! He's such a creative little man! I love his gallery. Galleries at our house are typically Lego related. They sure are special, no matter what they are!

  6. Betsy,
    I can still remember cleaning my room and closet as a kid. I always loved it because it seemed quite common to find something I had forgotten about. There was also the joy of finding a new way to sort and arrange things. I still love doing this in my classroom.

    I think you're right. Your son is going to need more gallery space!


  7. How lovely that he cares enough about his creations to create a space for them while cleaning.

  8. Your slice made me happy. How wonderful that your son has set up his own gallery. That stool screams voice! You've given him such a gift to have the freedom to create, and be celebrated.


Thanks for the comment love!
