Ben and Shira have a playdate with another brother and sister. The kids were at a loose end so I gave them each a large sheet of paper and suggested they each make up a country and then draw something that is representative of that country. The boys both immediately started drawing weapons and flags. Our little male visitor drew a butt on the flag with farts bubbling out of it.
The girls are drawing beautiful pictures of the countryside with assorted horses and unicorns. Both pictures include happy rainbows.
Now the boys are regaling me with stories about how fearsome their countries' weapons are. Ben's country has a broadsword that changes color when necessary to keep it camouflaged.
Why am I so surprised at how differently the boys and girls are working on their projects?
