Gizmo...or is it Gadget?

As I mentioned in yesterday's post I am the Craft's Leader for VBS this year. This is my 3rd year doing it and I really do like it, it's a lot of fun. This years theme is Gadget's Garage. The director asked me if I could make a robot as part of the decoration this year. Of course I can!! And by I, I mean Hubby!!


Here is a picture of the robot. (I can't find a really good one in color on the website) I have yet to figure our who is Gizmo and who is Gadget (and it's day 4!)


Here are some pictures from 'our' work in progress. We didn't buy anything new to make him, it's all found/used/recycled 'parts'.

Eyes, nose and buttons~don't mind the napkin, we had takeout from Cane's that night!


arms and computer...


hat...

head...


body...





legs...

The action shot....


As you can see he is pretty tall. All the kids (and adults) really seem to love him. Hubby did a great job on him. All the classes even got there pictures taken with him!!


This is the preschool class, it's hard to get a picture of all of them. M1 is in the yellow shorts, M2 is being ushered into the picture by the teacher. The two girls to the side are the teachers daughter and friend, they are both great girls and really good with the kids. See the little girl with her arm around M1? Her mom and I went to school together, we were in the same confirmation class. Isn't that funny?? I wonder if she will replace her?


Now the only question is what do we do with the robot after Friday?
