And then the boys kept wanting to keep painting. Will produced "Zoo" and "Pretty in the Forest" and Owen produced "My House," the sequel. Then we cut and bent eight legs into toilet paper tubes and the boys painted spiders to hang for Halloween.
Their creations still need eyes and look generally less spiderish than I envisioned when I found these tube spider instructions online (Will decided it would be fun to patterns and multi-colors instead of going for all black). But we'll hang them anyway after we've spent a month amassing other vaguely ghoulish art.
