What is this little green monster up to?
Ah, painting toilet paper tubes, what else?
(and no, Hubby, we can't stop collecting toilet paper tubes. Who knows when we might *need* them?)
(Oh, and everybody else, don't tell my husband I've got a growing collection of cardboard egg cartons stashed away--who knows what he'd do if he found out? Like, I bet he'd try to recycle them or something drastic like that)
And look, he has a friend with him--she also appears to have green hands.
Hmmm...seems like those kids are always painting around here...and yes, this part of the process soon evolved (or de-volved?) into finger painting as well.
And now, after several days of painstaking labor, the big reveal. Ta Da!
The finished project: Advent calendars.
Thank you to Kendra at My Insanity for the inspiration, and to Nicole, Andi, and Jamie for their moral support and assistance in my quest to find materials.
I think they turned out cute, if a little cheesy, and, as Andi assured me, the cheesier the better for kid craft projects :-) In fact, I like these ones so much, I might just shell out the money to make a permanent one for our family.
Happy Advent, everyone!
