I am sure if you follow this blog you have heard me say how important I believe it is to find creativity whenever a person can. I especially try to ingrain this into my children. I hand them crayons, markers, paper, paint, glue, string, beads and every other possible thing in which to be creative. I sit back as the masterpieces roll in. I have an entire wall space dedicated to their works of art.

It was no surprise then the other night when my son began getting creative with dinner. He is four and has Aspergers and a few other issues that have him looking through different eyes than you and I. I love his insight and creativity. What we once viewed as a disability has now given us a new and beautiful perspective on the word “normal. Anyways, that isn’t why I write this morning.

I wanted to share “Astro-Boy”. His latest food creation. Chicken nugget, fries and ketchup! He told us a big story to go along with the visual. Astro-Boy flies through the air, saving the world from yucky tasting food …and on and on. I really do think it was a clever use of the medium on hand and the composition while remedial is genius. Okay, maybe not so much. But it is fun, it gave us a chuckle and hopefully it does you as well!

Please remember if you want to be features, know someone I should feature or have ideas of things you would like to see here on the Bumpkin blog, please let me know!!!
