My 7 year old daughter is always doing things that make me go “Wow, I never thought of that“. In fact, she does things that I’ve never seen anyone do before! Today I’m going to describe some of her more creative accomplishments.
Her latest invention has been to create a doll house out of a shoebox and a slightly larger box. With tape and what she has cut out of paper, she has created beds, swings (for the backyard), sinks, and other dollhouse furniture out of the paper and tape so that the furniture is 3D instead of 2D.
She has a lot of pride with her latest invention. There are girls in the world that can’t afford to have a fancy wooden dollhouse (which my daughter does own too), but if they were to follow my daughter’s design or just get encouraged and try to do as my daughter has done, I’m pretty sure they would have a great time with it. Of course, my daughter has also created paper people for her paper dollhouse too.
Since my daughter was about 4 years old, she has been creating books. She took a count of the ones that she didn’t give away and that are still in her room. I wasn’t surprised when she told me that she had over 100. It just so happens that one of my wife’s ancestors was a famous author, perhaps she has that same vein of creativity in her blood too.
The Youngest Blogger
My daughter thinks being an author would be cool, but she also likes the idea of having a blogsite after watching me and having one of her comics uploaded (click on: Like Father, Like Daughter: J Comic #1 – Mr Plate Runs to check out her work). She also created a second comic called “J Comic #2 Mr Plate Meets a Lion” which is pretty good too.
I know that at first, I would have to do most of the work, but this might be the perfect opportunity to create a internet diary/scapebook to record her life. That way my parents and other relatives could check what was going on with my daughter and indirectly my family, via her site. I’ll probably use more video and pictures than I do at moneyreasons.com.
By creating such a site, I would be teaching her that it’s possible to do such things and I could use the site to encourage her to continue with her creative ideas.
