On Monday my husband carried home, about 3 blocks, a huge empty box. He received a delivery of chairs for the Math Lab. The chairs came in the box. All kids love boxes and our son, Parker, is no exception. The box has become a nebula class star ship.
The box is so large that I had to carry it around the house to the playroom patio doors to get it into the playroom.
The dome is a plastic shade that fits over a bulb. These were the old playroom lights, just bulbs hanging from the ceiling with these sad plastic shades clipped on. It makes a great star ship dome though!
I'm not sure what all the markings are for on the inside, but Parker has been working very hard on it every day after school.
He has a used aluminum pie plate that will become the deflector shield soon.
I have been swamped with work lately. I am taking a labor intensive two week course on WebCT, an online course delivery and course manager type software. Since I am doing more classes these days and the classes are online courses, I thought it would be a good idea for me to finally take this course so I can use WebCT in my job. I am taking this course in addition to my regular jobs which is really cutting into my sewing time. So this star ship project is about the most exciting and creative project going on at my house right now.
