Family art project

We did a little family art project yesterday.

The only supplies used were two boxes of Crayolas, a framed canvas, a glue gun and a hair dryer.

The boys sorted, organized and glued the crayons to the canvas before school.

After getting Zach out the door, Bryan, Luke and I went to work melting...  We saved the finishing touches for Zach to take care of after school.

This is a project that requires patience.  The kids didn't care much for the melting process.  It takes a loooong time.  Bryan and I found it to be especially calming and relaxing.  Who knew?  I'm going to have to stock up on the 40 cent Crayolas at WalMart. Can you say mental health break?

Luke LOVES this family art project!  He shows it off to everyone who comes over.

Thank you, Meg, for the inspiration.  I've never met you, but I love your blog, your creativity, your style, your photographs, your heart, your passion, your mothering...  Such fun you have with your family.
