We LOVE Angry Birds around here. I mean, we really love it. I haven't bought any merchandise or anything, but I will play. A LOT! And the girls love it too. I don't mind them playing, but they will veg out in front of the computer forever if I'd let them. Now I'm not a huge fan of them having tremendous amounts of screen time, so they don't get to play very much. So, to satisfy their need for destroying questionably stable structures inhabited by pigs, I decided to make them a table top (or floor) version. Actually, they started building their own Angry Birds games using blocks and dinosaurs and dollhouse people. So, technically this was their idea. I just spruced it up for them a little bit. The pigs are just some little wooden balls that I had in our craft bin and the birds are rubber balls from the dollar store (they came three in a bag). Total cost for this project? $1 (plus tax) and about an hour total of painting. I will post pictures of them playing when the sun comes up. It's too dark in our house right now for my little point and shoot to get a good picture. But they are playing happily, I assure you.
And completely off topic, I have been having trouble posting comments to my own blog (probably me doing something wrong), but I always want to respond when you all comment. Know that I do read and appreciate whenever I get comments!
