Metric Monsters

My very clever son was given an assignment in one of his classes to make a MONSTER from re-cycled materials. Then he was to measure it using the metric system. Here is what Brady came up with for his Metric Monster.
I saved all sorts of fun materials for him to use .... but he also was keeping things - because he had a design in mind. He's very creative. It's REALLY cute.
The box is a Kleenex box. Teeth and eyes are from a paper plate. The tongue is from a Doritos bag, the crown is from a toilet paper tube. Isn't that clever? He spray painted the box - after trying to cover it with scrapbook paper (which really frustrated him). Spray painting was much easier. And luckily I already had some!
Then he added some arms/hands. Isn't it darling?
Grrrrrrrrrr! I'm gonna eat you! Hissssssss!

I just wanted to say a quick hello & let you know I have been reading your blog, but just haven't had a minute to comment!

Brady is a good sport to let you take all those pictures! (I was laughing too). My oldest always strategicly places his hand in front of his face/the camera! I have to be sneaky or quick!

I enjoy your blog!
