I especially like the situations when our crafts are made spontaneously, usually it is even more funny!
So it was like this – dad brought clay, when mother was placing paper plates in the cupboard, and Timmy was reading a book about insects! A craft idea with paper plates came! And 10 minutes later we had a butterfly out of clay and abstraction on favorite “bee” theme.

I did not control the actions of Timmy, did not suggest and did not show, he did everything by himself. I drew the clay butterfly – and I got quite a child picture.

Timmy told me where the bee’s eyes, proboscis, wings. A pink spot – it is pollen, which the bee collected and is bringing to its hive.
