The Art Box


Nicole at Tired, Need Sleep has started a weekly blog carnival called The Art Box. (Sorry I forgot to mention it in my Great MckLinkys post yesterday!) Anyway, this is a very easy post for me to join in on because this is pretty much what D wants to do EVERYDAY. The idea is that you give your child a bunch of material and let them make whatever their little heart desires. D has been very resistant to doing the crafts that I have planned for him lately. He only wants to make robots or Transformers out of anything and everything. This project started off as a paper plate turkey but D had different plans. I do not give D a certain box from which to create but this day he was so into it that I pretty much gave him free reign of the art closet. My favorite parts of the ROBOT are the 3-D glasses, markers for arms, and the old Cable bill invoice. I am very proud that he is such a creative little boy.

  3. I just love what D did - it's amazing how the children turn anything into what they want. Anna always makes cookies when she does open-ended art and she can spend a good hour just going through the process of making them, baking them, cooling them and having a tea party with them :)

  4. Amazing! What a great robot... D sure is creative and must have a fabulous imagination!! I love that he does this kind of thing every day. And isn't it funny that little boys fixate on such things as transformers and robots, lol. :) Thank you for linking up!

  7. Love it! He used such a wide range of materials. I particularly love that he reused the cable bill. At least it served a good purpose at one point in its life, eh?
