Well, because I'm not crafty, I don't do a lot of art stuff with the boys. It's messy. It requires preparation. There's a huge chance that the boys won't even be interested and then I'll have a bunch of craft supplies and no one to use them. Because what would I do with them?
Occasionally, though, I get a wild hair and do something mildly crafty. Because I'm a masochist. :)
At the Renaissance Faire, Hank got a few "treasures" from the characters roaming around. Probably because they couldn't walk by his cute little face without wanting to give him something. I know how you feel, guys. Anyway. They're pretty small and they keep getting lost, so when I saw two small, unfinished wood treasure chests at Michael's for a couple of bucks, I grabbed them. And then the boys picked out some paint and we went home, excited for our little activity.
Granted, it took me a couple of days to work up to actually doing it. But we got there! And wow, did they have fun!
|Did you know that if you mix purple, yellow, electric green, royal blue and red together it makes army green? Well, both treasure chests are now army green.|
