You are trying to distract a few little girls from the Jesus video while you babysit for a weekend church function.
There is a stack of blank paper and a bucket of crayons on the table. One child iis trying to draw a rose. One is writing a card to her father, requesting that they don’t get rid of their dog, Caspian.
The 7-year-old has begun with a few yellow stars and is now darkening the sky with blue. She tells you that you need to fill in the parts close to the stars because it is too hard for her. How should you reply?
~ Color the more intricate parts for her, but leave the open sky for her
~ Tell her to try it herself, so that by practicing she will perfect the art
~ something else: please explain
*if it makes any difference, all of the girls are homeschooled. . .
