I’m joining in on a new linky-thing called “Kids Make the Darndest Things” over at Jen’s. Sounded fun because my kids are ALWAYS making things. I have 3 kids, so storing/keeping all these masterpieces is a challenge. I have gotten better and do actually throw some of the minor works away. Then I have 3 professional portfolios I bought at an art store that are about 3’x 4′ that I wrote their names on and put the better works in.
OK, this needs an explanation… Max has sensory issues and the school allows him to doodle during lessons. I went in one day and the ENTIRE closet door was covered with his doodles. This was what was left when he brought it home. The middle says “Max Rules” and the rest is a hodge-podge of creativity. He was really excited because he designed their class surfboard for field day and the design won for the entire elementary school!
My little dude is big on making “mad scientist stuff.” I find potions and experiments all around. My freezer is teeming with frozen mixtures of “I don’t want to knows.” Recently he took a test tube and filled it with “flour, and a bunch of stuff” he says. I don’t think it’s flour, but it made a tornado in a tube which is actually really cool.
