Does Your Child Keep a Sketchbook?

My daughter has had a sketchbook before, but I was excited to see some of her drawings that she recently did in her new book.  I gave her no instruction so I was really impressed.  She usually will draw things from her imagination, but she chose to draw things around the house.  I wanted to share her wonderful drawings. Let me know what you think.

Here is her sketch of our Valentine Teapot that we have had forever and that she has always been enamored with.  It was so cool to see that she sketched it.

Here is a sketch that C made of my husband's plastic heart gear that he ordered online.  It was created by a 3-D printer which is something my husband has been obsessed with.  Obviously my daughter finds it just as fascinating or she wouldn't have sketched it.  The gears actually work on the heart too. SO fun!

Lastly, here is my daughter's sketch of The Snowy Day DVD cover.  She has loved this book and movie since she could walk. It just happened to be out because she told me that the snow reminded her of Peter and the Snowy Day and she wanted to see the DVD and book.  That book will always have a special place in our hearts here.
I can't wait to see what else my daughter will sketch in her new sketchbook!


  1. Oh! I'm SO inspired! Your posts have renewed me! xo, Your Sister in Christ

  2. This is so neat that your daughter loves sketches. My daughter (same age) also has a journal, but she is writing in hers. Funny how different kids have different passions!

  3. Love the drawings, especially the heart teapot. And we love The Snowy Day over here too--it was one of my husband's favorite books as a child!
