"If I clean and take really good care of the club house, can I paint it?"
Now, for others, this might warrant the same enthusiasm given the choice between PB & J or Turkey sandwich for lunch.
But for me?
This was the best thing ever! She was able to see "outside" the box.
She believed in her self and she knew she could make it better!
And above all, she felt creativity and acted on it.
Maybe just a tad, but outside of blogland, I see creativity squashed all around us.
Young or old, I rarely see it nurtured.
So of course my answer was "Yes!"
She stuck to her word and cleaned the entire club house
(never mind the fact that it took her approximately 40 swiffers and a bottle of pledge)
Thus the Clubhouse Makeover began!
She brought her supplies up...
Opened them up...
And got started...
She choose to do one wall in 2 shades of blue..
Another in pink and red, while the third in pink and blue....
And the last wall in a variation of all shades...
How fun is that??
She and her friends are so excited for the clubhouse makeover!
Now that the paint is almost done, they are on the look out for bean bags and floor pillows.
Something tells me I'll be getting hit up for an allowance soon!!
P.S.- I was so proud of her that I wanted to give her a chance to talk about her "creative" process during the club house makeover. Stop by tomorrow to see my interview with Lil' Red!
