Kiana needed to create a “diorama” of the “Scales of Anubis”. Ahhh…what?! I had no idea what the hell this even was. So after googling it, I found out it’s that horse headed man from Egypt holding a scale to balance a heart and a feather. Awesome! How the Fuck am I going to make this? Yes, you heard that right. I said “I” because we all know that it’s the parents that need to come up with the ideas for these wonderful projects and essentially do the work. So, Kiana and I headed to the local dollar store to gather some supplies. After browsing up and down the aisles an idea came to me. Yes! I will take a G.I. Joe figurine and a plastic farm horse, cut off their heads and swap the bodies! Voila! A manhorse! I know, this sounds a little psycho but just go with it. We head home to start our magnificent creation.
I get out the cutting board and a large butcher knife and proceed. “Off with their heads, ha ha ha ha!” At that moment Rob walked into the kitchen and looked at me as though I had completely lost my mind. I just grinned and kept cutting. It’s always good to keep your hubby on his toes (insert evil grin). LOL
Next, I glued the horse head onto the G.I. Joe body and painted it black. Then I glued on a little yellow sarong. Wow, not bad! I am impressed. We completed the scales by using wood coffee stir sticks, clay and the bottom of an empty egg carton. Another stupid…I mean delightful project completed!
