Art Day: Wire, Animals & Aliens

Surprising Supplies for Art Day

Every Sunday is Art Day at our house. This time instead of paints or Sharpies or glitter, we pulled out wire, fabric and stuffed animals! Thank you, Carla Sonheim for the inspiration.

Working with a Frog

It was a little intimidating, so we thought maybe it would be good to start small. Shannon and I worked with identical wee frogs.

And then we pulled out the wire.

And suddenly mine wanted to be tall and invite a buddy to play and Shannon’s wanted to have wings.

Then the wrapping began. I don’t remember the last time I laughed so hard and so long while creating! At this stage I was imagining my guy being a traveling alien musician.

Shannon's Frog Bunny

Shannon’s became this wonderful creature with strapped on wings, ready to fly! (or paddle – you should see her feet!)


And mine turned into Zeb.
