Out of Box Thinking?

~ Posted on Wednesday, December 21, 2011 at 8:02 AM ~

The other day, I was spending time with Ben, doodling and scribbling on this pad of blank papers with him. Then I decided to teach him how to draw straight and curly lines.

So I went and draw 2 vertical lines and at the same time, telling him, "Ben, see mummy draw straight lines, now you follow!"

And then he went and draw this:

Out of Box Thinking

You know what he said while he tried drawing his straight lines from where he stood?

He said "LADDER"

I was gobsmacked!

Never will I imagined he will think something else other than a simple straight line!


I just sat there stunned and amazed at this awesome discovery.

See again close up below:

The 2 vertical lines were drawn by myself while the horizontal ones were by Ben...
