Both my boys have always struggled with their handwriting and in turn they lack confidence in colouring and drawing as well. Both have come on leaps and bounds in the last year, good teachers have really helped, and after I bought them both some new colouring pencils and a little sketch book each at Easter, they have taken to creating art work more readily. Tink now enjoys drawing but has still been a little reluctant to colour. For him if it can’t be perfect then he’s failed at it.
So it was with some surprise to me that he eagerly entered a colouring in competition last week, held by a local gift shop that he very much likes. Spurred on by the possible £10 voucher to spend in said shop he sat down for almost two hours and coloured a very detailed picture of superman, as you can see above. He did a great job, and was very pleased with his own efforts as was I. We’ve handed it in and it was placed in the shop window with other entries. I know he’s keen to have that voucher but to me he’s a winner already, we’ll just have to wait and see..
