diy angry birds game9:45:00 PM
So the other day, Jack began the day by asking me for an Angry Birds game he saw in the store. Upon further research, I concluded that any retail sold with the name "Angry Birds" on it is very overpriced. Of course, I may not appreciate it completely because (here's the confession) I've never played Angry Birds before, but I just didn't want to spend a bunch of money on a dinky game.
"How about you make one out of fabric, Mommy!" I get requests like this often. I guess it's my fault because I give in to half of them, drop everything and make whatever it is. This morning, however, I did NOT want to spend my day making an Angry Birds game, so I kind of pushed it off.
Luckily, Jack's creativity kicked in and he came up with different ideas that were quick and easy. He found a slingshot thing in Rob's junk drawer, and a finger puppet Angry Bird he got at a birthday party.
After Jack asked me to make the green guys from fabric, I replied, "We'll just have to get some green balls another day and make them."
"How about some Easter eggs!"
Well, it was kind of perfect.
With a sharpie, sticky paper, tape and a penny, we got the job done and pulled out the blocks. We realized that this would work for the other birds as well if we wanted to go all out.
