Kids Make the Darndest Things #1

I'm joining in on a new linky-thing called "Kids Make the Darndest Things" over at Jen's.  Sounded fun because my kids are ALWAYS making things.  I have 3 kids, so storing/keeping all these masterpieces is a challenge.  I have gotten better and do actually throw some of the minor works away.  Then I have 3 professional portfolios I bought at an art store that are about 3'x 4' that I wrote their names on and put the better works in.

Some new works:

Close up of his "death penguin"
OK, this needs an explanation... Max has sensory issues and the school allows him to doodle during lessons.  I went in one day and the ENTIRE closet door was covered with his doodles.   This was what was left when he brought it home.  The middle says "Max Rules" and the rest is a hodge-podge of creativity.  He was really excited because he designed their class surfboard for field day and the design won for the entire elementary school!
 
Their board is the one on the right with the kids

Emily won a contest at school too.  She designed the new middle school t-shirt!  She is a fantastic artist and I imagine that will be her career path (if not science.)


My little dude is big on making "mad scientist stuff."  I find potions and experiments all around.  My freezer is teeming with frozen mixtures of "I don't want to knows." Recently he took a test tube and filled it with "flour, and a bunch of stuff" he says.  I don't think it's flour, but it made a tornado in a tube which is actually really cool.

What creative, crazy things are your kids making?  Come join up and tell us!

Thanks for commenting on my blog so I could find your fantastic world.
I laughed out loud at death penguin!
My kindergartner came home with a paper that said, "It is safe to climb bunkbeds. It is not safe to climb a cactus."
I may have to join in on this one!
And I'm a new follower and I'm adding your world to my blog roll. I'll be back!
