Se7en’s Gallery of Recycled Robots…

October 27th, 2011 · 22 Comments

We had been so very busy with recycle crafts just lately. Everyone piling in and building and constructing to their hearts content. The only thing between the recycle bag and works and works and works of art is glue. Tape, while marvelous is no longer sufficient my kids are on a mission to use heaps and heaps so glue…


So we began… with a pile of equipment:


Then we plotted…


And planned…


We pondered…

We tested…

We explored…

We experimented…

And we glued…

We glued and we glued and we glued!!! And after an afternoon spent in glue heaven this is what we came up with:

A Gallery of Recycled Robots!!!










That’s us – Have a fun day!!!

    Wow! R2.D2 please stand back and make room for the next generation of visitors from outer space. Had no idea there was such a wonderful selection of friendly characters visiting from way out there on some distant planet.

    Hay Kerry!!! Catch your heart… It was a birthday gift and not a huge slab but rather a box of thin slivers… and after dinner treat of note!!! Totally loving Lindt – have you tried their salty chocolate – it is my all time favorite!!! Have a great evening!!!
