Someone suggested spinning off to do an art thread. I also really hope that people with older children might show some of their art too. Post pics of your child's art (ooh, or your own!). I'll do mine shortly, once I upload.

I got a bit carried away, but mine is one of the many mentioned that was obsessive about drawing. He's not really into it lately, however.<br><br>
Aside from drawing a few faces, ds1 didn't draw until he was almost 3. I don't really ever remembering him scribbling. He just wasn't interested.<br><br>
He did like to make things before then though. This is a digger made from pattern blocks.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=digger_mar9_04.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...er_mar9_04.jpg</a><br><br>
This is a copy of a toy car with driver, from when he was 3 and a half. He added a caterpillar track to the wheels.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=car_dec16_04.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...r_dec16_04.jpg</a><br><br>
This is a crane. I think it was from, "Are you my mother?". The S shapes are noise. Again, 3.5.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=crane_dec12_04.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...e_dec12_04.jpg</a><br><br>
This was our house facing our open garage. The cars are in the garage, but seen from the back. The foundation is underneath. Our neighbor's house is sort of at an angle to the right, just partly visible. He was almost 4 here.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=house_march05.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...se_march05.jpg</a><br><br>
He went through a period where he drew things as though they were taken apart, shortly before age 4. This is the ceiling fan taken apart.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=fan_apr30.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...=fan_apr30.jpg</a><br><br>
This is the artist taken apart.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=may05_benapart.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...5_benapart.jpg</a><br><br>
This is a clown walking, almost 4 again.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=clown3_apr05.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...own3_apr05.jpg</a><br><br>
This is the artist (partially visible on top) and his truck friends climbing a mountain while ds2 watches from below. The wind is blowing some boxes and poor Digger off the side of the mountain. Age 4.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=jun05_mtclimbing.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...mtclimbing.jpg</a><br><br>
Age 4, from a learn-to-draw book. He desperately wanted this "learn to draw vehicles" book from the library. The top one is a Japanese Zero plane and the bottom one is (we think) the Lockheed Constellation.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=jul05_planes.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...l05_planes.jpg</a><br><br>
This one's from August. He got into making instructions. He was upset that we wouldn't buy him glass to make a display case for his digger, so he made instructions to show how one could remove "scratchies" or sharpness from glass so that it would be safe for him to handle. The big square is step one. There's a hand outstretched, ready to take a shovel with the sheet of glass on it. There are scissors next to the shovel, ready for the job. The middle squares are steps 2 and 3 (scratchy removal process and scratchy disposal into trash). The top square is the finished product.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=ben_aug05_glassinstructions.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...structions.jpg</a><br><br>
This is from the other day. It's a banana truck behind a car. The banana truck has its side raised up to reveal its engine and gas lines.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=ben_oct05_bananatruck.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...ananatruck.jpg</a><br><br>
The 10 planets in orbit. Pluto and planet 10 (is it Xena?) have moons. Africa is visible on Earth.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=ben_oct05_10planets.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk..._10planets.jpg</a><br><br>
He hasn't really been into drawing like he used to be. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> He made these machines out of pattern blocks. I mean, he draws sometimes, but it's not obsessive like it used to be.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=bl_machines.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...l_machines.jpg</a>

I should put some from my little guy (24 month old).<br><br>
This is an elephant with an eye showing. I think he announced what it was after he scribbled.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=tom_sept05_elephant.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...5_elephant.jpg</a><br><br>
This is a scribble with lots of circles.<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=tom_oct05_scribble3.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk..._scribble3.jpg</a><br><br>
This is a "coo hoo train" or a circle train. He announced what he was going to make before he drew it, which is a new thing for him. The lines in the upper left are the "woo woo!!"<br><a href="http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk72/?action=view&current=tom_oct05_circletrain.jpg" target="_blank">http://photobucket.com/albums/y6/hrk...ircletrain.jpg</a>

I have tons of art work of my kids but no way to post them.<br>
My dd started scribbling when she was 1 then went on to sit for up to an hour drawing by the time she was 2. I wish I could post some of her 2 yr. drawings she did lots of tiny detailed circles and stuff. She was so focused on it. She still loves to draw but now she draws what I believe is more typical stuff but very well.<br>
My ds has followed a more typical progression of drawing. He draws a lot of super heroes and cars.<br><br>
I LOVE my kids art work and try to keep most of it , which can get hard since there is soooooo much. When I ever get around to it I am going to frame some of it and hang them around the house.
