I liked all the things we entered so I thought I'd share them here for some pre-Easter fun:
The first person to finish the Peeps Art project was Quinn. He likes maps and decided to do the United Peeps of America (Land of the Peeps, Home of the Other Peeps). Note the different types of Peeps for the different oceans. He also did the map outline freehand (because tracing would be cheating, even though there is no one anywhere who expects a ten year old to draw the U.S. freehand).
My piece is the Milwaukee Peeps Orchestra. I figured it would be cute to display in my violin store after the show. The dog ate the first conductor and I found the mangled little baton on the floor. The dog also ate the assistant conductor, so I had to go back to Target for a new package of them. My favorite part of my little group is the wonky music, because it looks like what I imagine a Peeps orchestra actually being capable of playing. (I also like the slightly confused Peep in the second section who isn't playing.)
Aden's piece she finished up at the last minute so the best pictures I have of the whole thing were taken in the car on the way to Racine. She's a fan of the Legend of Zelda, so she amused herself by making the Legend of Peep. The one tricky part was to dress them properly she had to cobble together taller Peeps first. I love her little Peeps figures.
So that was fun! There were tons of Peeps and art supplies on the dining room table for about two weeks, and I miss our having a group project to do now. We're already looking forward to next year.
