Unplug your kids......Stone.
This weeks theme for unplug your kids was stone. I had trouble coming up with ideas for it. It thought about doing this project, but we did not have a chance to get stones that would be big enough. So I had to come up with some other idea. hmmm what to do, what to do. So I decided on some Sand Art. After all isn't sand just ground up stone. I know I am stretching it but it was all I could come up with. The boys love it to so that is good.

To start with I gathered some of our colored sand, Glue, Paper, pencil and Q-tips.
Step One you draw out a picture that you want. (check out Sam's design over here)
Then you spread glue on you picture. Then Sprinkle sand on top of it and shake of the extra sand.
Then you have your sand art picture. A very easy project to do. I actually drew out a dinosaur for Gabe. It is a little hard to see. Well that is it for this weeks project make sure to check back for next weeks theme...Glass. Until then check out everyone else's over here.
