More Mosaic Made by Kids!

These are all old now: my boys made them at the ages of 4 and 2, but they are still in the garden (by the entrance to the secret hideout) and still intact! Both the boys made the whole thing themselves. I helped Liam with drawing the icecream cone, but it was his concept and he chose all the colours and mostly lay the tile himself (he was only 2!!!). Rory made his entire stepping stone himself from start to finish! They used all broken ceramic tile that they laid directly onto the stepping stone. Made in 2005.

Kids never cease to amaze me – even when they’re seriously pushing the boundaries. In fact that’s when they really don’t cease to amaze me!!! 🙂 It’s time now for my daughter to start wielding her wand… She wants to do one that is pink and purple and that involves mermaids or ballerinas! It is absolutely inherent!!! I’ve never consciously thrown this kind of thing to my kids and yet the boys are boys and they’re into all the typical (stereotypical?) boy things. Molly is a girl in every way, has been since the day she was born. We are definitely different species…

  1. Hi guys,
    I’m afraid telling you how to make mosaics in this way is really too long and convoluted – I’d end up not doing my own mosaics for a long while.
    I have written a post about how to start and where to get help, so I hope this will atleast get you started. The link is usually under Top Posts, check it out!
