Pink Birds

When we taught kids to transform milk cartons into birdfeeders at the Bronx Zoo we met many amazingly creative kids. This girl was one of my favorites. There are the kids (myself included at one stage) who try and copy the sample designs to get theirs to look just like mine, and get upset when it doesn't look perfect. But I have a special place in my heart for kids who creatively go their own 
path. Who just make it up because it makes them happy. She decided that her bird should be entirely pink. Not realistic, not multi-colored but head to toe pink. And she was pretty darn happy about it!!!!
So take her boldness, her willingness to go beyond the "rules" and her sheer joy and be inspired to find those "Pink Birds" in your life. What are you waiting for?
