My boy has talent

This is Tim's avatar toy. The last few days he has discovered the TV show again and has pulled out his old avatar toys. He goes through phases of what his favorite toys are. It's been Batman, Spiderman, Star Wars, Avatars, Indiana Jones, Legos. There is one thing that is always a constant. One of Tim's favorite things to do is play with play dough and clay. The boy loves play dough and clay. There are times that he will sit at the kitchen table for hours and hours and build and create with clay. I'm always amazed at what he does. He makes figurines with movable and removable parts. I'm talking with play dough!!!! Yesterday he made this avatar figure modeled after his toy. He just sits and moves his hands around even while watching TV and can create these things. I take pride in the fact that I can roll a play dough snake and if I'm feeling exceptionally talented I can attempt a rose. Tim has me beat by a landslide!!!

This picture is the same avatar but with his mask on!

I wish I had talent like this!

take care,

Wow...tell Tim that is very good! He does have a talent for sure!

My five year old grandson, Connor, will only play with playdoh for about 5 mintues! He loves the computer though! That's about the only thing that he will sit still and do! LOL

Hope you have a great day,

Dawn , your Tim does have talent. I believe he gets it from you. Give yourself some credit girl. You do all kinds of artistic things.. You just are not motivated to make Avatar. smile!

I rely on instructions to can or preserve. I think you can preserve sauce, I would freeze it.

Love ya, Jeanne

Take that boy to A.C. Moore and get him some polymer clay so he can bake his creations! I love clay too - maybe you've seen the mermaid I did using a coke bottle as a base? I've got pictures posted on my myspace page of it. He's got some real talent!

Oh my gosh! That's an amazing Zuko! Seriously, seriously cool! I couldn't do that if I spent three weeks at it!

By the way, is it bad for me to admit that I love Avatar?

Tim is one talented boy! :) David, 9, goes through those phases, too! I try not to throw or donate any of his toys when he moves on to something else, cause I know he will be back! LOLOL!

Thank you for your sweet comments on my LH project!

Hugs, Rhonda

Dawn your Tim is very talented. That little guy really does look like him. He could grow up and be real famous, and we can all say we knew him when. Tell Tim he did a wonderful creative mold of this guy that I never heard of. haha My son is 28 now. Have a good day.
