The spirit of creativity in children
I love teaching children visual storytelling with
the accordion book structure.

Children enjoy folding and putting creases in the papers.
Some draw from left to right.
Some right to left.
Some start in the middle.
It is their story and they tell it the way they want.
I give them pencils, crayons, water colors, and lots
of encouragement to create images and tales.
Children are natural storytellers.
One easy lesson children enjoy
is creating inkblot drawings.

They put ink drops on one side of the paper,
fold down the other side,
rub the paper with the back of their hands,
