Saturday Night Art

Saturday wasn't the funnest of days for Liam. We went to Park City to do some shopping at the outlets... not the most kid friendly of activities. The one highlight was playing on some slides while dad hiked to find the car. When Ian got back with the car, Liam fought us wildly on leaving.

Understandable.

We went to our favorite place, Sweet Tomatoes, for a late lunch and he did his best to behave there. He actually had two helpings of pasta and went to town on a blueberry muffin too... oh and I almost forgot the croutons. Carb overload.

As lame as that place was for him, he still wasn't too excited about getting back in the car. The pains of following Mom and Dad around on a Saturday. Life sure is tough.

So when we got home, I decided we better do something fun for Liam. While Liam was coloring and I was putting away dishes, I remembered I wanted to try mosaics with him. So I went and got the construction paper and brought it to where Liam was coloring. I gave him a pair of scissors and got a bigger pair for myself. We started cutting squares... lots and lots of squares! The non-artistic mom made images with glue and Liam worked to cover all the glue up!

Here are the mosaic results:

Great idea! I know Little Dude is still under two, but his "school" just informed me that he is amazed with glue, whenever they have done a project with it.

I'm so not crafty, but could do this! Thanks for the idea, Gina!
