Imagination Drawings

My son has been having some trouble using his imagination during play.

Today we did an art project that worked on using his imagination and helped with sparking his creativity. I gave him two pictures that I drew of a truck and a house. I asked him to turn the truck into a fire truck (his favorite) and to fill the "rooms" of the house with his family doing things in each room.

Here are his completed pictures, on which I wrote his comments on as we went over them together.

It was great to see that he put some thought into his pictures as he usually just scribbles to get something colored in. It was also great to be able to talk about the pictures in detail. I think he enjoyed working on this one.
