5 Minute Project

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, January 04, 2013

I know I said I wasn't going to share every day of my Creativity Journal... But today's project was really fun and it's something that I think a lot of Sparkers would have fun doing, on their walks or runs.

Day 4: Take a 5-minute walk, then make something using whatever materials are available where you've ended up.

I loved this, because there was absolutely no pre-planning. I mean, how could I, when I wasn't even sure where I was going to stop? That's what made it fun. Plus, I was already planning on taking a walk this morning, so this was my warmup. What a fun way to give your walk or run a little extra zing.

Sidewalk Snow Deer, with a little bit of this and that

    Actually, we would really enjoy seeing what you get up to everyday in your Creative Journal. Please consider it. Maybe a weekly photo digest?

    Wow you guys have a lot of snow. I've never seen a snow fort before. We don't get enough snow for that. We used to dig a big hole and cover it with old Christmas trees for the roof.
That snowman was amazing! How did they do that? How did they put the head on? Are your neighbors Amazons?
I loved the reindeer. You're very creative. I suck at things like that. You're so much fun to watch. Thanks for the video!

    Another excellent blog and brilliant craft project.

I much preferred your snow deer to the giant snowman (although I'm glad you showed us the lattter too - I've never seen one that big!).

I'm enjoying your Christmas present. emoticon

Send my regards to Steve!

    How cool is that.....

I am going to steal this idea and do this project with my kids. They would love going for a walk and stopping to make something. Thank you for sharing so that we can have some fun as well.

And yes.... that is probably the biggest snow man I have ever seen as well. Kudos to that family!
