I have referred, in times past, to SmallDaughter's Picasso-like tendencies. Most little kids take a turn drawing on a wall or two. She has written on LITERALLY every surface in our home--The list includes the front of the toilet bowl (and of COURSE the top of the seat, goes without saying!), the INSIDE as well as the outside of the oven door, both the top and the underside of the dining room table, every window, the TV and computer screens, the list goes on and on. She has used a wide array of media as well--the obvious choices being pen, pencil and marker. Less obvious choices have included lipstick, nail polish, glue stick, Tide Stain Remover pen and deodorant (which, ironically marks on EVERY SURFACE!)
However, since we took the nasty old wallpaper off of the upstairs hallway, and since I have not gotten around to PAINTING the hallway in question (yeah, yeah, yeah, it's on my list...) She has been joined in her decoration activities! If you get to come up the stairs to the upstairs hallway, you will see every wall has something--and the main wall has LOTS!
And, if you look closer, the details (which may be weird or gross!) are often pretty darn amazing! If you look up high:
If you go further down, there are some informative and factual tidbits:
And, clear down at the bottom, lurking above the baseboard is a tiny, mysterious doorway (with further examples of SmallDaughter's art, as well!):
