Got the girls a new sketch book each to initiate a habit of sketching outdoors. Their first entry was done this morning at the zoo. Sketching helps them to focus and pay attention to details, at least for older Gem! Their “reward” for good behaviour was a postcard of choice from the gift shop as a cover for their sketch book.
These were their responses when I asked about their favourite part at the zoo. Older Gem – “Sketching the white rhino.” Younger Gem – “Choosing and buying the postcards!” I think it was a good day!
