Picture Perfect Meme

I have only just discovered what a Meme is - and have certainly never taken part before, but I came upon this one on SnafflesMummy, and as well as appealing to me, I thought it was appropriate for here, so decided to join in. The Meme was started by Tara at Stickyfingers. I picked up on this a little late, but better late than never. The idea was to ask your child to draw or paint a picture of you, and display the results, so here are the portraits of Mummy that my 2 boys produced (the eldest is 5 the younger just turned 3)  I think (hope) you'd struggle to recognise me, but at least they've shown me smiling, and I like to think that's significant!


Tara has done a wonderful video of some of the earlier contributions, but if anyone else has any portraits they'd like to show off by a child under 12, please feel free to add it to the Artful Kids Flickr Group, and I'll feature it here at a future date.  In fact my next post will be devoted to a Featured Artist with a Christmas theme, so if your child has produced a special Christmas picture and you want it to be considered, you'll need to add it soon!


  1. They are lovley pictures to treasure.

  2. what lovely pictures. Nice that they know you are a smiley mum too.

  3. Thanks for your comments - I'm very pleased with both of the pictures!

  4. What great pictures! The detail is excellent in your eldest's picture, I'm impressed. And I love the first people pictures younger children draw.

    I love my children's artwork and keep too much of it. One day the boxes of it will take over the house!

  5. Glad you appreciated them! I too keep boxes of my kids artwork. In fact that was part of the inspiration behind this blog - what to do with it all!
