Channeling our inner Salvador Dali

(GAH!! It’s another shirtless-at-the-table post.  I SWEAR ON ALL THINGS HOLY we do stuff in other rooms.  That other rooms EXIST in this house.  And that the boy owns multiple shirts.)

We got the Little Scientist one of those Alex-and-Marie busy boxes last Christmas.  In retrospect, he was more than a BIT young.  But as we head into the Christmas season a year later, we’re finally to the point where he does the crafts with me, instead of drooling on the stickers while I color.  (PS – awesome, awesome materials.  Well made, well packed, blah blah blah.  And they don’t know I exist, so they certainly aren’t paying me to say this.  It’s just good stuff.)

In this activity you take the blobs of imitation play-doh and stick animal heads and legs and tails and stuff (including a disproportionately large cow udder, but THAT’s another post) in to make farm animals.  In my mind the pink blob went with the pig, the white with the cow, and the blue with the blue horse.  Logic, right?

Oh, hell no.

I think we’re renaming the Little Scientist the Little Surrealist:

Silly mom. Horse heads go NEXT to cow legs.

Contemplating the cosmic aura of the horse head. I think. Or pooping. Same face.

The Cig. Or Pow. With 5 legs.

ADAMANT that the blue and white blobs only have one leg apiece. Unlike the pink blob. There was definite strategy… I think. Maybe.

Not surreal? The awesome #iPPP ladies. They’re all kinds of really real. Check ’em out!

    I love the cig-pow! That looks like a lot of fun. And if it makes you feel any better, my kids are always shirtless and always in the living room. 🙂

    He is so serious when he works … very focused and knows exactly what he wants! I think that Cig-Pow came out perfectly!

  3. LOL!!! I love your pics. Been a while since I popped in- sorry! You need to do iPPP every week. Unless you have been and it’s me that fell off the wagon.

    • Nope, it’s been me – thanks for the sweet words! I’m the WORST at looking up and going “CRAPP! It’s FRIDAY!” – although I really have no excuse. Not like I moved across the globe with 3 kids or anything. 😉

    I love the cig pow! This looks like a great little activity- I’ll have to check it out. Shirtless boy wonder does a great job of selling things with that focused face.
