It's Sunday afternoon and the snow is falling like powdered sugar over a sweet dessert. My kiddies noses are pressed against the window as they watch this magical confetti turn the ground into a soft white blanket. Their excitement fills the air as they quickly gather their snow gear and prepare to step into a winter wonderland.
Sometimes creativity blossoms out of the blue; sometimes it takes a little more effort; but if you just let inspiration take you away, anything can happen, including something like this.......
May I show you something?
My original idea when making these little penguins was to have the kiddies take them outside and knock them down with snow balls, like a carnival kinda game. But after painting their cute little faces, I fell in love with them (I say that in the humblest way possible) and decided to paint the rest of them to coordinate with the stocking advent calendar. And I am happy to report, they have marched up the stairs and reside safely in the warmth of our upstairs hallway. Needless to say, I will have to make other little creatures for use during snow ball target practice (perhaps I have found another use for an earlier creation?)
And here we are, acting like penguins on a perfect winter afternoon.
I hope you allow your creativity to take you away today.......
