  8. Jyoti says

    Thnx for all those who voted for my son’s drawing #14 THE SPRING JUMP.
    Yoplait is our favourite snack. When he drew this drawing I din’t understand what it was. He explained , “Yoplait has made me so strong that I can spring jump very high and get the flag from the Sun’s hand”. He also drew the coach who trained him.
    Now I know what it means to reach for the sky.
    Thank you yoplait and 5M4M.

  9. Sarah says

    It’s hard to compare drawings from kids of different ages, who are so different developmentally. I’m particularly impressed by the 5 year olds whose work is among the finalists. Way to go!

  10. Aunt Lori says

    Great job Gracie, #7 is a winner in my book. The family looks so strong and happy.To be one of the finalists is a compliment to your art.
