Murals on Monday

I learned a long time ago that trying to direct my childrens creative endeavors was mostly pointless. They generally have no interest in any of the projects I try to use to expand their horizons. Mostly because whatever project they end up making is way better than anything I could have dreamed up. Ahem.

That said, I picked up some art project books from the library, the kind with step by step directions to talk them through the projects. The good news is they didn't want to do any of those projects either, but they did inspire some pretty fun murals.
So these photos are of the mural Alex designed that all three ended up playing with. It's a castle with a garden maze. The little lego pieces all represent something different. The blue ones were knights, the orange ones were attackers etc. There was a pretty epic battle over the princess, or at least that's what I hear.

Like I said. Way better than any project I could have come up with.
