As we packed boxes in Illinois, Spence came up with several ideas of things he wanted to make with the boxes once we arrived in Florida. I kept several of the large boxes as we unpacked, but his interest had waned. Nevertheless, I stacked a few of the boxes and asked him what he thought. He decided they’d make a great rocket. Or robot. Or robot-rocket. So this week we took the first step by painting them. He opted to do monochromatic sides, and I let him choose the colors. Hopefully this week we’ll finish the project…once he decides what he wants to create!
Saphira was more interested in painting her pumpkin, so I let her have free reign of the paint. She was more focused on opening and closing the paint bottles, but she still managed to swirl several colors onto her pumpkin.
