Girls’ Artist Trading Cards

 While we teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about. Anon

  I have always loved that quote.  I am constantly amazed by my children and others in how they take what I see as complex and turn it into stunning simplicity. My youngest had one of her friends over this weekend and their every conversation, choice and play seemed so natural.  There was no concern of political correctness and no self conscious behavior, just two kids who genuinely liked each other.    

They pulled out art supplies and wanted to make artist trading cards.

My youngest found a tri-fold card I had, painted it gold, applied a key


And symbolized what she treasures within ~ love, music & animals


Her friend found the butterflies


They swapped friend ATC’s



And then they joined two ATC’s together to represent their friendship

Very cool to watch them enjoy creating while talking seriously about the definition of a true friend.  Inspired me to go ahead and post my ATC creativity prompts’ PDF for girls with the themes of All About Me, Feelings, Friendship and Girl Power.  They can be found @ Girls Express.

What’s inspiring you this weekend?
