The 8 Day Bug Challenge! - Day 3 Caterpillar



It should be noted at this point that this challenge was also inspired by the boys book "How to draw Brilliant Bugs" by Lisa Regan and Steve Roberts which we found on a rare occasion of tidying their bedroom. Jonah (7), who likes to do things just right has insisted we start at the start and do a page a day. On Friday night Hugo's friend Apira stayed overnight and happily joined in the morning activity. The kids are great to draw with because unlike me who is agonising about getting it "right", the boys draw with total freedom and confidence. Hugo and Apira were so disinterested in the instructions that they turned their noses up at drawing the ladybugs but excitedly drew caterpillars. And no...they did not need to look at the book...they knew perfectly well what caterpillars look like!
