Creative Question Friday
I love Fridays. I especially love this Friday as it’s the first weekend in months where I haven’t had to get up early on Saturday morning for a wedding or photoshoot. I am seriously looking forward to a lie in and a lazy breakfast with Pete. Simple pleasures and all that…
So my creative question this week:-
Tell me your earliest memory of making or creating something.
My earliest memory of making or creating something is a picture that I painted.
When I was around 5 or 6 I had a friend. I used to go around to his friend’s house to play. I remember his mum always used to give us ginger cake and that he used to say ‘lellow’ instead of yellow.
We were both scared of wasps and one day we decided that we wanted to play in the garden without being troubled by pesky and terrifying buzzing things.
The only solution to this problem was to paint. We painted pictures. We painted pictures of wasps with large red crosses over them so the wasps would know to keep away and we stuck them all around the garden with blue tack.
I don’t recall whether it worked but I’m guessing that it didn’t.
It does show that children think creatively and without constraint.
This is my earliest memory of creating something. Tell me about the first time you created something.
