More egg box fun



There's something irresistible about those eyes. This morning I spotted the nose in the locking mechanism. It didn't take long then to find a mouth.

I quite like that she ended up with a number on her cheekbone.

I think I'll have to paint this one, but if I get the paints out now, the kids will want to paint too, which I'm not sure I have the energy for.



















Edited to add: I couldn't resist in the end. I set the kids to painting the remaining bits of the egg box, and got to work with my lovely slightly-rusty brown acrylic (bought for the Angry Birds project).


I used a wash to highlight the numbers, but it was a little too thick, so I ended up wiping a lot of it off. I have some pretty good ideas for the rest of the robot. The question is, what will I do with it when it's finished?
