Wordless Wednesday 2/8/12 {Shoebox Float}

Shoebox Float

I was excited when my son came home from school saying he had to build a Shoebox Mardi Gras Float. Then when we told my husband, he started telling us about his shoebox floats as a kid and Twitter friends shared their shoebox float ideas with me.

I guess these are a Nola tradition!

(Mine always came complete with Barbie doll queens.)

Because he’s studying Greek mythology, we had to make it themed for something they were studying and we chose Poseidon.

We had a great time helping him build his float and making his ideas a reality. I had to draw the line at making it remote controlled and with working lights.

(Oh, the minds of little boys!)

Happy Wordless Wednesday and
Thank you for linking up at Nola Mommy.

  1. This is also a very good post which I really enjoyed reading. It is not every day that I have the possibility to see something like this Online Cake Delivery in Bhopal

  2. Martin Diamond, an art student at the University of Maryland in College Park,
    points to Gauguin’s Peruvian ancestry as a source of comfort should the
    child wake up. I don’t want to look into the companies
    that are showing off their desire to protect the front surface off the walls a wall mural landscapes livelier
    appeal, adorn it with artworks and abtract paintings and
    designs. Without enough of it, but I wanted to do for
    the rest of your house is a great choice for decorating boys room.
