My first 3D model Car

Last mth, there was an assignment from Zac's school. The theme was transportation. Parents need to assist the child in doing up a 3D model of transportation using recycled materials.
Hubs not in town then. I had to visualize & build it up myself.
I used the empty boxes from the boy's food & the core from the toilet roll.

Then, I pasted some colored papers with the help from Zac just to beautify it. I cut the toilet roll core & Zac colored them using black color pencils.

Zac helped to paste the wheels & added in some stickers. I told Zac the bigger Chipmunk is mama & the smaller one is Zac sitting beside in the car.

I was shocked that Zac replied "Mama drive then brake.... I leaned forward like that !!"

I think he remembered the other day when I stepped rather hard on the brake & he got a shock. He leaned forward due to the braking force. I turned around & asked him if he's ok & said sorry to him. Such accidents tend to make the kid remember. Its really scary. I need to be more cautious... ....

I asked Zac if it looked like a car, he replied "Yes" & held proudly in his hands !!
This was my first attempt to make a 3D model. I did it in 15 mins. So glad that my boy thought it was good. That's so encouraging to me !! YAY !! :):)
Such funtime with the child at home doing some simple art craft is meaningful yet enriching ... ... :):)

Well done! Treasure these moments with them... this is the time when they think mummy is the BEST is the world! Of course they will still think so when they grow older but they won't show their adoration so openly anymore.

Heart of Rachel said...

Great job Janice. Making projects together is a rewarding experience.

Mummy to QiQi said...

Janice, I love d idea of cutting up the toilet roll for the wheels :p

J@n!ce said...

Blur Ting : That's so true. I believe you are facing it now your boys are slightly older. I will soon be in that phase. I hate to face it, but no choice :(
