Weekly Photo Challenge – Create

The picture above is my oldest son’s Father’s Day present to me last year. It is the Flying Spaghetti Monster! It is probably one of my favourite presents I have ever received! Why?

It took talent, creativity, imagination, and it was shaped by my son’s hands! It will always be a memory for me now. The same can’t be said for bought presents…

I was tickled pink that he chose to make me the Flying Spaghetti Monster too. I emailed a picture of it to Venganza.org, the creator of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti monster, and he posted my kid’s creation on the site. To this day, it has got over 300,000 hits!

Encourage your kids to create! Take a moment to compliment them on their art, poems, stories. It is something that I wish my parents did with me more often…
