Give Ben some paper, pencils, crayons, and/or pens and he will entertain himself for hours on end.
He loves to draw and I love to watch him do it. His drawings usually evolve into a story telling process, so if you are not there for the beginning you may miss out. By the end it may look like a page of scribbles, but it started with a boy on the mountain looking down at his house smiling because the sun was shining....until the aliens invaded! Then there was war, chaos, and fire.
He also goes through phases of favorite subjects to draw. This week it is robots with only one antennae and eye.
But just so you don't think he is all serious business...
I think he's looking a lot more like his daddy these days ;)
