The Giraffe and Finny and Me

I've been reading Finn (3) The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me  by Roald Dahl for the last few nights, and today as I was putting Evie to sleep Finn comes tapping at the window proudly displaying his wonderful Giraffe drawing. I found one of Evie's squeaky Giraffe toys for Finn to compare his own drawing against.

I pointed out that Giraffes have ears and horns, and large spots. He set about refining his drawing.

I set him up at the easel with some watercolour paints (limited to browns, white and greens) and he painted the Giraffe, some trees and some insects.


At the end he proudly announced "I'm an artist, like Nono" (his grandmother). I think he might be right.
