Art Challenge Day 4: Snow Day = Junk Art

Another round of snow came just during the morning commute, so the boys' school was canceled for the day.  We decided to do "junk art" which is something they love in art class at school.  Basically, "junk art" at home means supplying the kids with lots of materials that could be classified as "junk" (along with some old blocks, ribbons, and clay) tape, scissors, and the glue gun.  Then, I stepped out of the way and let the kids create whatever they wanted.  With my kids, this art session also required a lot of science, too, as they tried to design movable wheels, a telephone, loudspeaker, and a missile launcher.  They had a blast!
