Impressed me, he did
Often when I read to the kids they pull out either paper and colored pencils or play doh so they can keep their hands busy and listen better. We were reading "Journeys with Elijah Eight Tales of the Prophet" by Barbara Diamond Goldin, a good book by the way, and I looked over at Spark and saw what he had created. This is what he had. The middle section is a dug up treasure with a piece of the treasure on top of it. This part went with the story, normally his creations are just random pieces of whatever. On each side he made a water vessel, one complete with a stopper. I was impressed with his undirected efforts and thought they were quite good for an eight year old.
