Recently, Ron dug two model cars out of his parents house and brought them home to assemble with the boys. Of course Mom had to buy the paint on one of her errand trips, boys are full of paint, and dinners have been over models for the last week, but I do love seeing Dad and the boys so engrossed in a project and learning from each other. Dad learns to be patient and let his sons paint their car whatever crazy color they want, and sons learn to listen and follow directions.
So this got me thinking of more crafts father and son could do together. I can always find an abundance for Mom to do but Dad...that's a little harder. Plaid Pigeon has dinosaur planters all over the blogs right now and when I saw these I thought, "Why didn't I think of that?" It's simple enough, steal two of the one hundred dinosaurs in the house(not the easy part), get some paint and a succulent plant.
When I started this project, the crafty me was all excited, I had finally gotten the paint(the last thing needed) two months after I first saw this. I finally set them up to paint only to find Dad ready to spray the (my) dinos! No, no, no! This is my fun! But alas, cutting, painting and planting is something Dad wants to do!
Here are the small drainage holes!
