Pictures from Lily and Jack

We’ve had the art stuff out today. To be fair Lily always has the art stuff out, but today it’s pictures from Lily and Jack. I’m trying to come up with ideas to get them away from “screens” without forcing the issue. Lily is quite good anyway, but Jack would sit on his Xbox all day if you let him. Trying to force him off it is not the approach needed, and will just cause him to resist harder.

Suggesting other things he can do, usually with me or his mum often works. It might take a few attempts of different ideas, but generally he likes doing stuff with us. Whether he will do something with Lily, very much depends on his mood. Anyway, onto the pictures. I will start with an old one that has had pride of place on our living room wall since before Christmas.

Today Lily made some sort of card, I think. Not exactly sure what it’s for, but she enjoyed doing it, which is the important thing. It’s very funky and colourful that’s for sure.

Jack chose to draw one of his favourite characters from the games he likes to play. Bendy, from Bendy and the ink machine. Jack likes to draw something he is looking at, the complete opposite approach to Lily. Who likes a blank piece of paper, and just draws whatever comes to her. Autistic brother and sister perfectly making the point, that no 2 autistic people are exactly the same.

More art related blog posts and pictures are available in the Lily’s Art Work section. Which will now of course include pictures from Lily and Jack.

My name is Adam. I live with my partner Natalie, and our 2 children Jack and Lily. Both children are autistic, it is now my mission to show what life around autism is like. Spread the awareness and gain the acceptance that autistic people deserve.

      They did an awesome job. My kiddos love drawing and coloring! If they’re not playing and working, they are coloring and drawing. I have tons of papers of they’re work and don’t know what to do with them. I hope your family is safe and well. Thanks for the share!
