if you give a kid some wire…

March 18, 2011

Art unfolds in our house much like a “If You Give A Mouse A Cookie…” sort of way. I put out this lovely wire thinking we could do some cool sculpture which reminded Josiah of another wire project in which we used old junk from the recycle art box.

This sparked an idea in Jack, so out the box came. The stuff in the box inspired a windmill sort of sculpture which Josiah then decided something with wind power might make a cool boat…

which reminded Lucy of the Chronicles of Narnia’s Dawn Treader. She decided to get deep into ship building… and as a total side note I’m pretty sure I was the only one wearing clothes. So weird, right?  


At the end, someone thought the wire might be good to hang all this art from the ceiling.

    what a beautiful day! I love how you have captured their imagination in photos. Oh how jealous I am I am not young enough to do crafts naked and not care what I look like 🙂

  2. I love how ideas spur ideas.
