From A Child's Eye

Having exhausted himself, swimming all afternoon, young
GrandLove decided to work on a project.  When I asked what he was doing, he said, " I'm making a board game. "  OK, and so he was, busy drawing, writing playing cards, clipping paper pieces for spaces to the finish line,  making a 3D cave, bridge, whale and whirlpool., oh, and prize package.
 He enlisted his curious Grandma to write out his playing cards only if I wrote exactly what he said.  I could do that.
He also asked me to help him color, but he would do all of the gluing.  That also worked for me.
 By the time 'his' project was complete, he had 4 playing pieces made with stencils, and at least a couple dozen playing cards with   additional instructions besides the number of steps to take which are counted off a shake of 2 dice.  Everything folds easily so he can slide it within a very large envelope.  His board game even has a name.  Click the photo and you can see some of what  he wrote on a few spaces.  My favorite is the Whale's Tooth Cavern.
I loved working with him while we visited.  I asked him how he came up with the ideas.  His answer was, " Oh, I just drew it out of my mind, and now I'm making it.  Thanks for helping me, Grandma. "  
His curiosity and ingenuity is captivating.  

Kids seem to have much more smarts earlier in life. 
 No wonder I'm not smarter than a 5th Grader.  (In this case, a 4th Grader)

I hope you enjoyed seeing through a child's eye, if just for a moment or so.

Thanks for stopping by on your busy day.
