I didn't make it to my craft table much this week. Instead I was in the backyard with cans of spray paint and a utility knife making a Mickey Mouse box car. The Young Men and Young Woman had a combined activity and we did a drive in movie in the church gym with cardboard cars. Now these aren't your average cardboard boxes. The Young Men's president works for Lifetime and was able to bring home extra large boxes.
So with two cans of spray paint, duck tape, packing tape, and a couple of white paper plates I created the Mickey Mouse car. Thomas loved it and in fact it's now sitting on the back patio since he wanted to bring it back home.
Wesley had it in his head he wanted a trading post. I helped him put together a roof and table, but the roof collapsed as we were loading it for the trip to the church. He ended up using the "table" to hold all his food and drink during the movie and it help up well. To help everyone know it was a trading post I talked him into adding a trading post sign with a little inspiration from Frozen.
I couldn't believe the creativity of the youth. I really enjoyed watching them bring in their boxes as they arrived.
One of our Young Men leaders and his boy. This picture cracks me up every time I look at it. Just in case you can't make it out his box reads "low rider".
I have a few projects in the works right now. In fact I'm taking a little break from my craft table at the moment to right up this blog post. Hope everyone is finding lots of time this weekend to get in and play. :)
