Unplug your kids.....WOOD
This weeks unplug your kids project was about wood. I mentioned in previous entries that Sam has really gotten into these projects and wants to teach them. This week I turned the project into a math lesson for him. Since he wanted to teach it we took him to Michaels. We told him what the project theme was and he had 15 dollars for a budget. He was allowed to pick out what ever he wanted as long as he stayed under that budget. He bought three wood projects, markers, oil pastel crayons. He spent $14.87, way to stay under budget. So here are the boys projects. First is the special box that Sam made. It is designed to look like a book, which are his favorite things in the world. He colored it with the oil pastel crayons, then "titled" it with his favorite subjects.
Gabe picked out a box to make into a bed for his stuffed animals. I asked him if he wanted to paint it. He said no, he likes it the way that it is. Can not argue with that, it is pretty.
The final wood project is something that Sam is making for Gabe. Michaels has some nice model kits for $1. Sam bought this Stealth plane for gabe since he loves a good transportation thing. Sam put it together all by himself and is painting it up for him to. He is so sweet to his little brother.
Please check out all of the other projects at Unplug Your Kids. Join in for the fun next week. The theme is Eggs in honor of Easter. If you do celebrate easter you can do a spring/birth theme. Happy Crafting.
