Art gone crazy
We did a couple art projects this morning. The first thing the boys did was make ladybugs out of egg carton section. I got this idea online. They pained the carton red and I punched holes in it where they ran pipe cleaners through.
I also tried a project from this dough book I got from the library. This involved three roles of toilet paper, enough warm water to soak toilet paper, one bar ivory soap and 1/3 cup borax. After the boys mixed it up, they had to be boys about it and started throwing wads of it at each other and around the patio.
The ladybug needed black dots and I decided to let the boys use sharpies for the first time to put them on. I turned around to watch Christian for a few seconds and when I turned back around, Liam was drawing on the house. I don't know why I took a photo since it will be there until we have the time and money to paint the house.
I asked David if cavemen ever got ticked off at their kids for drawing in the caves.
