Construction Weekend, Part 3

The third project this weekend came courtesy of Home Depot.  For those not in the know, the first Saturday of every month, Home Depot has a kids workshop.

The link above goes to the project of the week, which was a picture frame.  However, when we arrived, there was more than one kit available.  And, unfortunately, about 50 kids and their parents.

Logan is not a fan of crowds.  Not even a little bit.  Still, the folks at Home Depot were kind enough to give us the kit, a kid-sized Home Depot apron, and a pin commemorating the construction of the "planter".

As you can see, this little project was not much more than a couple of pieces of backerboard glued and nailed to the two headpieces.  However, its life as a planter was quite short; Myra actually did most of the hammering, and promptly added the pink knitted blanket to convert it to a bed.  At least Buzz Lightyear is sure to have a good night's sleep.

Amusingly enough, during this last week I told one of our attendings about these little projects, and she was "amazed".  I recommended that she either check out my wife's blog, or someone who is actually good at these kinds of projects.
