Preschool Journal: Babies, sharks, and crayons on the beach

More entries from the unusual mind of a 4 year old boy (also known as my son’s preschool journal — titles transcribed by the teacher).  Can you tell he has a baby brother at home?

A super funny baby that doesn't even have a mouth.

Crayons are flooding into the ocean. Kids are playing with them at the beach.

There you have it — proof that my son can draw something other than really squirmy snakes.  He may not be an artist, but I love the creativity behind it.

Do you miss art class, say good riddance to it, or do you still get your crafty on?

  1. Love his descriptions!!!! Do you keep these drawings or photograph them and reluctantly recycle them? (they will start piling up!) I love arts & crafts and whatever time the kids get to use their hands. I plan crafts for J to do with the au pair, but am blank when it comes to baby O. I don’t want her eating paint or other normal craft supplies. Thoughts?

  2. These are so awesome! I love the titles and the descriptions! Getting a glimpse inside a kid’s mind is always so eye opening.

    I recently read an article that said coloring is really relaxing and a great destressor. I think everyone should have coloring books and crayons!

  3. I volunteered in my granddaughter’s kindergarten class today to help with creative writing. So thankful I can do it. It is only for a half hour, which flies
    by. I live an hour away, so I will only do once a week.
    The kids have to draw a picture and write 2 sentences about the picture and we
    help them sound out words. Not an easy task for the kids, but a good way to get them writing. It is so fun watching them learn and grow and use their imaginations.

  4. That’s so cute 🙂 My son doesn’t bring home art as frequently but when he does we hang it up on the wall and it’s always video games related 🙂 If it makes him happy – why not! 🙂 Have a great weekend Sarah! -Iva
