My son came up to me a couple of hours ago and told me that he needed to come up with an art project for a language class. They were assigned to create something featuring idioms. My son wanted to make it colorful because they apparently get plus points.
Since I have been into coloring and he has also been into it, I suggested featuring coloring pages he's done and then finding idioms that fit the design. This is the end result.
Idiom; dragon lady - a ruthlessly powerful woman
Idiom: on the side of angels - supporting the good side
Idiom: promise me the moon - to promise things you cannot fulfill
Idiom: hold your horses - wait a moment
Idiom: lounge lizard - a man who wants to get rich by marrying a rich woman
Idiom: snails pace - being very slow
Idiom: barking at the wrong tree - to make the wrong assumption
Idiom: 800 lbs gorilla - someone so powerful they feel that they do not need to follow the rules
Idiom: wake up and smell the coffee - pay attention
Idiom: green fingers - good in gardening
B was the one who colored all these pages and wrote the idioms. I only guided him. I felt so happy that we were able to really utilize the coloring pages he made for a school project.
It feels really good when you get to help out your son with the things that you love.
