Creative Kids

This Summer, as with each one for the past 3 years, my boys have gone to the library's Summer Reading Program. They look forward to this every year, and it always proves to be a great experience for them. They always have awesome activities and prizes and, of course, it promotes a literate Summer vacation and lifestyle. I love that aspect of it because it is another adult teaching them that lotsa reading is important!
This year, our librarian put some cleaned up garbage in front of groups of kids and told them to use their imaginations to build anything that they could. Here is what my boys and the 2 others in their group came up with...Introducing: The Robot King of Liberty....

How 'bout that imagination! They did such a good job that this fella was displayed in the front of the library for the month. Ty was the only one I could catch long enough to pose here, but Jacob and Caleb (our neighbor) were a part of building it, too. GREAT JOB GUYS!!
Sadly, SRP was over on Thursday and we sure will miss it.
Thanks for hangin' with me through a Momma-brag moment.
Have a great day everyone! :)

I love it!
I G had been there he'd have helped -- or insisted on a rocket/space ship. Boys and tape. I love it.

Your comment made perfect sense - and I totally loved the pun about you being from my random gene pool -- in a comment about going to the pool...

I bet you'd make a pool of yourself along with me. :-)

Way to go kids!!!! Awesome work!

I signed up Brooke for the reading program at the North Shelby library and we didn't even go one time this summer! I guess I am excused considering that she can't read yet! Maybe next summer will be better..;-)
