Out Work

On Saturday I went for a walk to the woods with my young nephews. We had a snack while sitting on a fallen branch and then collected some fallen treasures on our way back.

Once back, my 5 (and three quarters) year old nephew arranged our treasures on a little table in the garden -

We then drew it, side by side at the little table in the garden. He on a large piece of paper and a pencil selected from my tin, and I in my sketchbook with the graphite stick.

While we were drawing my nephew announced that we had created some 'Out Work', ...'not Art work Aunty Alice, Out Work because it's outdoor things and we are outdoors'. 
He labelled his picture accordingly.
