Building Block Art, this one's for the boys! (okay, the girls can play too)

My kids LOVE to build with blocks.  Lately my preschooler has been impressing us with his creations and detail in his buildings.  So I thought it would be fun to add some architectural details for him to play with.  Everyone thought this was quite fun and I was soon bombarded with requests for dinosaurs and kitty cats! Children were waiting in line to challenge mommy's artistic abilities with sharpies.




I had taken these pics of the original windows and bushes I surprised the kids with before everything got crazy.  I suppose I should have made some doors.... Now instead of thinking we have way to many blocks I'm wishing we had one more of that size or that shape so we could make whatever at that moment.  If your kids are old enough they will love drawing the details on themselves!  I attempted to allow my preschooler to draw the bulldozer he requested, because he has much more practice at drawing machinery, but he must have gotten stage freight, we ended up with a scribble mess, but he had fun!

  13. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I
    found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
    hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never
    wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hey there this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors
    or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    I'm completely new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able
    to share my personal experience and thoughts online.
