the kids watched a fantastically cute movie last night, zeus and roxanne, about a dog befriending a dolphin. they loved it.
one of the characters in the movie played the guitar. not terribly significant to the movie. shortly after the movie ended, silas disappeared to our craft table downstairs. when i approached him, he eagerly asked me to cut a hole in a box he retrieved from our recycling bin and specifically instructed me to ‘just cut the hole, not the box, don’t cut the box’. so i carefully cut a hole out for him.
then he ran off and came back with a paper towel roll. he asked for the tube. since there were only a few sheets left, i complied.
he got the painter’s tape out of his craft box and attached the tube to the box and asked for some rubber bands.
seconds later, he had his own guitar. he then proceeded to strum away and sing a song about smiling and being happy.
looking at this guitar makes me happy…he’s my little upcycling crafter!
