The cardboard tree, For the fall festival. The living room has been temporary turned into a workshop. Stacks of cardboard, boxes of hot glue and sharp things. The eight foot tree is going to Oscars school for there annual “Fall Fesival”. I was a great time, thank you for the great event. Below are some build pictures.

The boys wanted baby versions of all the animals, that’s why there are so many elephants, it took a minute to make them tiny.

The Feliciano brothers make monsters.

Afternoon project with TATA:

On a rainy afternoon they make monsters out of play-dough and colored toothpicks. The stories they come up about them are awesome I wished I had written it down. The monsters have been living on a “drying” shelf for months and I was going to toss them out during a “people are coming over” cleaning, but I stopped and took some pictures first. I hope the boys, in time, learn to forgive me for tossing them out. 😉
