Art with pennies


The other day Alex asked if he could have some of my pennies to donate at school for a contest they were doing called "Pennies for patients" or something like that for cancer. anyway I said sure just go through my change "bucket". The two of them spent the longest time sorting through pennies finding odd ones and ones with specific years, they discussed and traded etc... I was amazed at how they could entertain themselves with just a bunch of pennies. (If only I had known that before we purchased all those video games haha). Anyway, later in the day I stepped into their room and almost stepped on this.

This just in... Connor had been sleeping behind me as I was typing this, at least I thought he was asleep. He asked me to "read it out loud so he could make sure my facts were correct (oh boy) so I did. The correction is that they were watching "River Monsters" while sorting pennies and HE and HE alone was inspired to do this. I'm glad we got that cleared up. ****YOUR WELCOME CONNOR****

Never would I have believed they'd like it so much either! That is such a fun penny drawing they made.

It's great to have a teenager in the house - FINALLY, someone on-site to make sure the adults don't do anything stupid.
