Rainy day Angry Birds….

Happy Monday!! Hope everyone had a great weekend. The weather here was a little on the dreary side this weekend. It was a nice break from the hot 95 degree days we have been having!! With that, I took the opportunity to clean my house and catch up on laundry.

But, we all know that kids do not like the rain and therefore, it was also a good time to do a quick craft project with them. If you remember my post on the ‘Angry Birds’ project fail, you will also remember that Christopher is obsessed with Angry Birds lately.  He was watching a You Tube video on a kid who made Angry Birds out of clay….so we need to mimic what the video and headed to Michael’s. I have never really used clay before, expect probably in high school art class….LOL! I was not really sure that to expect.

Well, we got the clay that you ‘bake’ so that out characters would stay nice and hard. I just took a picture of the Angry Birds and went to work modeling the clay. For my first time, I think that they came out pretty good. Needless to say, it turned into a project that “I” did and the kids just watched…LOL!

Here are our Angry Birds…

In addition to out clay project…I whipped up a quick t-shirt with fabric markers.
I think I am over Angry Birds this week…..LOL!

Have a good day!

Cute! My boys are obsessed too. So much that I've decided that they're getting an Angry Birds birthday party next month.

Glad y'all enjoyed your rainy day project!

This is awesome! I just love how you can translate just about anything in to a crafting experience for your kids. They must just love this! The clay birds look amazing...I can just see McD's putting a plastic version of this in happy meals next year. LOL.

My son just made Angry Birds out of Legos this weekend. We're a little obsessed here, too.
