48. Cardboard Space Shuttle

IMG_5357 IMG_5355 IMG_5348
I’ve been saving this large box for a sunny spring day, even rescuing it from the recycle bin when someone stealthily tried to dispose of it. My son’s eyes literally lit up when I asked him if he wanted to paint it. He worked industriously on painting his space craft, painting the inside of the box shortly into the process – something which, I must admit, didn’t even occur to me. I love the surprises that come from working with children and giving them free reign over a process. It was also a nice change from all the indoor watercoloring that we’ve been doing lately.  His focus and process have changed so much since last summer; it’s fascinating to witness.
