Virtual Refrigerator: Silly Sculptures

Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! This weekly blog hop was started by Jennifer at A Glimpse of Our Life, and is now also co-hosted by Angels of HeartHomeschool Coffee Break, and Every Bed of Roses. We all cordially invite you to add your link sharing the art that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges!

I have been falling down on the job when it comes to art lately. Well, more than just art too, as it happens. We've had a tough time getting school done for a few weeks now, and the latest culprits were the computer (which wasn't working right), and our health (we all took turns with a cold or flu, then my hubby injured his wrist which ate up two full school days of doctors and surgery etc). So I kind of turned Kennady loose to do more or less what she felt like with art last week. We did do one project related to our social studies, and that was soap sculpture. The idea was actually to carve out an animal from soap, imitating the tagua nut carvings of the people of Ecuador. But when I didn't explain clearly enough, we wound up with an etching instead. But it's all good, and she had fun!
Landon's is on top, and is totally unrelated to Social Studies. It's the x-men symbol. :-/
Kennady did a llama, but it's lying down, which makes it look rather like a whale. LOL
Poor Kennady. We teased her about this being a whale, but it really is a llama. Lying down.
Also, I had suggested using the modelling clay we had to make these sculptures, but no - she wanted the soap. Fine. But then she got out the modelling clay anyway (and my camera), and silliness ensued.

An ice cream cone. Pretty normal.
Rock Band.
I don't know what this is. Nazca lines? 
Here's where it gets really weird. This is supposed to be a someone throwing up. I'm not sure why.
Cleopatra's poisonous asp?
A somewhat normal bracelet...
which evolved into this cobra. She kept this one.
Add a link to share your child's art or your arts and crafts how-to posts, and visit the other blogs and admire what's on their Virtual Refrigerators!
