I was looking through our family photos on the computer and noticing that we had a lot of crafty Ambrose pictures. I wish I would have thought to take a picture of ALL his crafts over the years, because it would be quite the overwhelming collection.
The boy loves trash.
Anytime I am about to throw out any empty box or container I have to hurry and do it before he notices or I will get in trouble.
"No Mama! I was gonna save that for a craft!" Is the most common phrase to come out of Ambrose's mouth after, "Sandwich please!"
Although I feel I am missing some of his truest masterpieces, here are a few I found recently:
Valentines- I did the cutting of coures cuz he was little little here
Rocket with Mama's help
Some sort of alien gun?
Stilts- grandma cut the hole in the cans
A remote control car remote... one Mama's trash is truly his treasure.... frequently I will throw something away and find it like this later that day.
A paper "friend" named ROM...
He was jealous of his friend's Ironman toy so he made his own
Jack Skelington from Nightmare Before Christmas
He insisted we need personalized, decorated food trays for Family pizza and movie night
A robot factory... clearly. This is a combination of different days of trash and you should see his face when you happen upon him configuring something like this. SERIOUS. We could go through a roll of tape in a week and sometimes we do.
A family of finger puppets
Oh get ready for this one! A laptop computer with a mouse to go with it. I walked in on this delightful scene. I laughed for like 20 minutes with glee.
Oh and sad, he really wanted video games like all his cousins and I told him not until he's older so he fashioned this little gem and played on it all afternoon:
Bug jar with grandma and her Stampin' Up! supplies and a recycled jar of course.
Extremely intimidating robot (Daddy helped with cutting)
Oh, and a clock.
You get the idea. I could post at least one a day, but suffice to say, this child is a crafty beast. I am endlessly entertained.
