Chas and I do this thing every Monday night called Family Night. We start with a prayer, sing a song, share a lesson (which usually consists of reading a spiritual message), have an activity, and then end with a treat. We love Family Night. It helps make Monday a little more tolerable.
Tonight, I was in charge of our activity.
First, we watched this awesome little mini-doc about the artist behind Daily Monster. Daily Monsters are created by blowing ink on paper and using the resulting random blot as a starting point for bringing monsters to life. Totally awesome.
Of course we had to draw our very own Sam & Chas monsters afterwards.
In order to be true to the Daily Monster form, I felt like we needed a certain lack of control to play with in creating our monsters. And since we don't have ink to blow across our papers, we made big, random squiggles. I did a squiggle for Chas, he did one for me, and our monsters took shape from there!
Make a crazy monster of your own, send your monster to me in an email, and I'll post the scary goodness for all to see!
