my creative space...

Numbers! numbers! numbers! My son loves numbers - for a while now I have noticed an interest he would take in numbers, any numbers of any kind.  You know, at the supermarket he would look and comment on what isle number we were in, what price something was, and out and about there are numbers everywhere!   I even make up activities for him that are all about numbers....

As a mother of two young children I like to get out and enjoy some fresh air and exercise so, with a 4 year old keen on numbers, I put my daughter in the pram and we all walk around the neighbourhood in search of numbers....

Yesterday I suggested he take his camera (an old one that is a bit temperamental) and take pictures of numbers he likes.  So all of these (besides the very top photo)  are his pictures....

He does the whole - hold the camera right up close - thing at the moment, but when we got home we downloaded them all and he was really excited about seeing what pictures he had taken.  

What creative things have you been up to?  Want to join in?  Head over to Kirsty's great blog here!

    We have been getting to school much more quickly over the last week or so because my almost 3 year old loves to find the numbers on every letter box along the way! Like your son, I have been thinking how cool the numbers would all looked photographed.

    Your son might be interested in Kids Click - - a little photography competition for kids. My eldest is really enjoying it.
