Phoebie has recently been into colouring pictures in colouring books that we got her.
Sometimes she will finish colouring the picture, and some days, she will just doodle what she feels like.
Because she colours a lot, I often wonder what to do with the pictures after she is done. If I were to keep them, there’d be tons of pictures and they might become clutter. But if I throw them away, I feel like it’s a waste.
And then I thought, I might as well cut out the pictures and keep them somewhere for future use.
When occasions like… Say… Teachers’ Day come, Phoebie can make a card with the pictures she coloured earlier.
Phoebie doesn’t know how to write yet, so I wrote on the cards for her.
Don’t ask me why Phoebie chose those pictures for her teachers. I like to think that children choose with their own special logic.
So… Okay, the pictures that Phoebie coloured have been reused and they didn’t go to waste, AND she got to practice applying glue and pasting the pictures 🙂
