Above are the kids' entries for The Crafty Crow's Funny Food Contest. They had so much fun with it. We just put a bunch of food out on the table and they went to work.
Middle Brother knew what he wanted to make from the start. His first idea was a double-decker bus, but after realizing it might get too heavy on top, he changed it to a cab for strawberry people.
We've been going to the pool a lot, so I'm guessing that's where Big Brother got his inspiration. We all got a kick out of the little carrot person in the mushroom floatie!
Sister tried out a few ideas first... butterflies, a garden, a hospital... before settling on her funny neighborhood. We thought the green onion guy didn't really care for his loud-mouth radish neighbor ;)
Little Brother jumped in with both hands without an end result in mind. He liked trying a variety of fruits and vegetables, exploring the feel and smells of each one. In the end, the rest of us thought it looked like coral and seaweed on the ocean floor, hence the name.
Check out all the other great entries here. The polls close Thursday at midnight. I know my kids would appreciate a vote in their direction if you're so inclined ;)
