Owl LOVES drawings of faces. It is his favourite thing. “Draw happy face!” is a command heard multiple times every single day.
He wants us to draw happy face, after happy face, after happy face.
This kid may be an extrovert. He may need a sibling.
And now he’s trying to make his own happy faces. He has seen us draw them so many times that he has the steps down pat:
1. Make circle.
2. Make dots for eyes.
3. Make smile.
Sometimes he adds ears or a hat, when he’s feeling elaborate.
Now, Owl’s artistic skills in general are on par for his age.
He can draw a straight-ish line, or squiggles. If asked to draw, say, an apple, he’s likely to make a single line and say “dere!”.
But his happy faces are getting quite good.
