Kids crafts are perfect for keeping them busy during the summer! I wrote this paragraph about my summer on Facebook yesterday, and many of you could feel my pain…
“My son is attacking an empty milk bottle with his Nerf gun while foam bullets hit me in the head and my daughter is singing at the top of her lungs yelling “What’s funny?” in between verses. Going to find some Asprin now:-) How is your summer going?”
After the Nerf gun, my son got out his light saber and went nutso on the milk carton. At that point, and after getting rid of my headache, it was pretty comical.
I decided he needed an enemy to attack. He thought that was the best idea ever. So I carefully drew a Storm Trooper on the milk carton with a permanent marker. It couldn’t be just any Star Wars trooper, but one that he specifically picked out. He would be featured on my blog, so it must be the BEST!
Please enjoy his posing. He worked hard on these! It was important to get each pose correct for all of the die hard Star Wars fans. Because you know George Lucas himself could see this.
Then he carefully set the enemy on the ottoman.
And did this.
And this… as I dodged a milk carton to the head.
This entertained him for a while.
It ended up being a fun afternoon after all. Now we’ll be saving milk cartons to make an army!
