I've written before that one of our favorite things is our easel and using the dry erase markers there. We were doing that again this week.
I walked up to the easel while boys were working there. I overheard: "And a splat of peach. Someone threw it there." Intrigued, I said something like, "Did you say peach?"
"We're making a dirty window," they said.
"And that's a splat of peach?" I asked, pointing to an orangy area. They nodded.
I watched the boys draw dirty windows...and clean them.
Over and over, they repeated this task.
I wondered about this particular idea. I never know exactly where kids get their ideas.
I'm thinking that our squeegie eraser caused them to think about cleaning windows. But it doesn't matter where the idea came from. I just enjoy hearing and watching them.
And if you need some windows cleaned, I know some guys who could do you a pretty good job.
