On Sunday it was rainy and we were hanging out at home when I mentioned to Andrew that maybe we should make some Halloween decorations.
He jumped to his feet, full of ideas. He wanted to make a banner of robots holding pumpkins. But not just any robots…pop-up robots with interactive pieces. He babbled on about tabs to lift and how the robots would change and move when someone did this or that to the banner.
So, we sat down with paper and Andrew got right to work. I gave Isaac paper and he painted a few pumpkins. Andrew was still spinning ideas and trying to make things work just so.
Not sure where he got the idea to go over the top with paper. Baffling, really.
He made one pop-up robot and then after all of that work, agreed to draw some simple robots for the banner. I cut some pumpkins out of felt and put it all together yesterday.
It was hanging when the boys got home. And they loved it…though I think Andrew still wishes it was more interactive. :)
