I seem to spend most of my time trying to convince my 6yr old to try new things. Whether it’s new foods, new friends, new anything. I thought about a series of books, each with a different hero/heroine trying each new experience until they find the right fit for them. At the moment we are discussing which after school activity she might like to do next year. There are soooo many choices – ballet, gymnastics, soccer, karate, circus skills, piano, choir, nippers the list is endless.
Luckily most activities allow a trial lesson. At the moment I am doodling the After School Activity Book. It ‘s about conquering your fears, stepping outside your comfort zone, perseverance and realising everyone is good at something. Not an easy thing to embrace when you are 6!
