The Tin Men - Completed
Here's part two of the recycled robot saga. They did it. The boys completed the coolest recycled scarecrow/tin man/robot ever!
Seriously, I was a tad doubtful - after my discussion with Ross on letting Hot Rod completely make his robot himself - that it would turn out looking like much of anything. I mean, he's only seven.
But I was WRONG!
It's DANG cool. And did you see his cool little front pack he made from an altoids tin?
I was seriously impressed. And of course, not to be outdone by his seven year old son. Ross went to super cool extremes to finish his scarecrow (he calls it that because he hung it in the cherry tree to scare the birds away from our meager cherry supply this year).
Do you like his grin?
And his bottle cap toes? We won't talk about who drank this much beer to get all these caps.
And look at his safety pin fingers.
My favorite part, however, is his belly button.
I just absolutely LOVE these recycled creations. I've got some creative boys in my family.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
