Nowadays E3 and E4 have also shown more interest as well. The three older kids can spend a good 30 minutes or more just sitting and drawing together on some days and they can do this a few times a day. We go through quite a lot of paper each day but I love seeing all their creations and having them tell me the story behind each drawing.
Recently to make things a bit more interesting and to help them not only hone their skills as an artist but also improve their writing skills, we have started to have the kids create their own books. I simply staple together a few pieces of paper and let the kids imagination run wild. They create their own covers and come up with their own stories with pictures and words.
It really is amazing that many times simple things can keep kids occupied for a long time.
