Behind the painting wall was a rubber band art board that Little Miss helped Thunderer with.
Some kind of lego-like building where Superman spent some very concentration heavy time.
Ultimatly creating this.
Speaking of building, there was also an area with real tools for the kids to interact with.
TJ found a clear spot to do some hammering.
There was a hand crank drill.
And then Newbie found the hammer station and tried her hand at it.
There was a wood sawing area too, so after some setup…
The teens raced through a pair of pieces.
Time to show of Redflare’s crafty handiwork!
While one of my moms crochets, the one I just found does not so at my request she made one for us to give her at Christmas.
I selected the pattern and consulted with Redflare on a good color combination.
I turned out beautifully.
Now I know earlier on I said I’d try to do fewer “single picture posts” or somesuch, but I also need to just enjoy things when there’s only one picture of the thing.
Like this chicken that Little Miss made.
Crochet, some stuffing, and a couple of beads.
Talent takes practice.
Little Miss’ egg creations from Easter are always very carefully created. This year was no eggception. She definitely ensured the line stayed perfect on this one.
Part of the Easter tradition is getting some new sidewalk chalk. Newbie and Superman each left a love note for Redflare on the driveway.
So the point of the art class exercise was to take an animated character of choice, put the character on a box grid, and then enlarge the picture.
Netflix will hopefully be bringing season three of Voltron out soon. We’ve been enjoying this remake quite a bit.
You want some of this? Well, go buy the book! It’s on page 77.
Here’s the description of it:
And the wonderful bread itself:
Dip it in honey, sprinkle it with powdered sugar. It was a fantastic treat straight out of Warcraft.
Redflare was asked by her sister if she could make a Christmas stocking for her nephew.
She happily obliged, and this is the wonderful end result.
A new reversible blanket from Redflare!
And just so you know, that ink spot came out in the wash.
How about something else I’m thankful for: being able to support Newbie’s hobbies/passions as they come and go.
She has learned how to make paper airplanes.
We now have a fleet of future scrap paper.
