Cluttered #2 or The Value of Summer Boredom

The creative process for my daughter:

1. Get bored.

2. Complain a lot about being bored.

3. Read books.

4. Attempt to re-create something seen in a book.

5. Usually, she's completely happy with the result, no matter how messed up it appears to an adult.

Afterwards, I don't know what to do with all of this stuff! [If you receive some of it in the mail, it's because I have too much.] But I think there is great value to summer boredom. You can almost see her brain growing as she tries to figure out the best way to create something beautiful.
