This weekend I put a shortcut on my five year old sons desktop for the Windows Paint program. This is what he created. It's a three story house with a blue roof and stairs.
Each room has a light on the ceiling. I see a few doors with doorknobs plus a sun and cloud outside. Not really sure what some of the other things are.
I think he was just trying out different parts of the program in the beginning. Then quickly figured out what icons do what, and drew a house.
I knew he had been doing some of the drawing activities on
PBS Kids.com and NickJr.com for a while now, but I didn't know how much he had learned about creating digital art in the process.
Just goes to show you how fast they pick up technology. It took me forever to figure out how to do the simplest things with a graphics program! I think I'll give him a Word shortcut next. Who knows, maybe he'll surprise me with an essay?
