It's official. I have passed the bug on to my children. My 16 year old son walked over to Home Depot yesterday morning and bought himself a giant board. I had to drive the SUV over to pick him up. In my PJs.
|This is only 1/4 of the giant board.|
I wish I had taken more photos of this. Glenn used this particle board to make a sword. He hand drew his design and then, using a hacksaw, cut it out. He spent quite a bit of time sanding the sword.
He then painted it glossy black and white. He had created this groove down the middle, it is painted black in the groove. I would say that this kid did really well for his first (completed) project!
|Nearly finished. He was up and painting at 5am this morning.|
Fumiko received an origami set for Christmas. I thought I was just buying paper. Turns out that these papers have designs and folding instructions printed on them. She make a kitty, a bunny and a puppy.
Aren't these adorable?
I sure hope that they stick with their new hobbies. And, I hope that they go easy on my wallet while stocking up on materials for their new hobbies ;-)
