We used the box that the charcoal grill came in, with some other "trash" boxes and containers, to create a spaceship! Not only did the kids have a ton of fun, it made for some great family time that did not include electronics!
Wings made of an egg carton, and adding on some important electronic components with the markers. Some visuals of outer space, and windows.
Then they spent about an hour playing space ship, taking space walks around the house, and even leaving each other on other planets for fun.
And...just for fun...here is another shot of them "creating" this week as part of their art curriculum. Noah wanted to wear an artist's hat, so Katie found one too. (No one tell him yet that boys aren't supposed to wear animal print...k? ha ha)
We may not have taken the time to actually do this without the inspiration of waste not want not Wednesday...so thank you Bethany!
They were creating a still-life of the bowl of fruit.
