As luck would have it, and by sheer coincidence, I found myself working with lots of numbers this week. Artscape starts tomorrow! If you are in Baltimore this weekend be sure to go. I’ll be there all weekend. Please stop by The Walters tent in The Target Art Park and say hello! We’ll be making gizmos and gadgets galore and telling everyone how excited we are about the upcoming exhibit, Walter Wick: Games, Gizmos and Toys in the Attic. I had a lot of fun making the above sample of a sea queen robot. We’ll have all sorts of odds and ends to comb through so that your little ones can build whatever kind of widget suits their fancy. Here’s a sneak preview of some of the loot…
Stamps, clock parts, springs and game pieces.
Spools, buttons, corks and dowels.
Clothes pins, paper clips, pipe cleaners, etc. to connect things up.
The idea is to get kids to think about ways to make their gizmos without using glue or tape. What do you think? Could you make a sculpture using just the stuff in your junk drawer?
Here’s the list of this week’s weekword participants… . aimee, cissi, B, Cathy, Christine, Domestic Scribbles, Carmen HIrkala, Nathalie, henniemavis, S.E.Minegar , trinsch, kirstin and Hanna (if I missed anyone please let me know) Be sure to check out what they got up to with the word number.
