My oldest Girlie (8) has one of the best imaginations and most creative minds. That said, it sometimes seems as if she uses that amazing imagination to set me up whenever project time comes around for school. Not only does my Girlie come up with some of the most creative but at times hardest ideas and she is always determine to make them true to her vision – putting my Momma Skills to the test!
Walk UP A Wall…!
When she came home a few weeks ago and told me that she had a Social Studies project where she needed to invent a product, create a sales pitch and then sell the product I knew I was in for a challenge. Especially when she got to the part about what her product was: a shoe that let you walk up a wall, that’s right – walk UP a wall!
I immediately started trying to figure out the actual physics of it all. How was I supposed to give her a way to show a show walking up the side of a wall? Thankfully, I only need to worry about the technical side of things because she always has the artistic side covered. This little girl can draw pretty much anything she thinks of and if she can see it she can copy it.

– tri-fold Poster Board

– KrazyGlue with brush applicator (Momma Use ONLY)
– X-acto Knife (Momma Use ONLY)
– Black Cardstick Paper
– Whit Paint Pen
– Markers, Glitter, etc.
– Brush the bottom of the soles from top to bottom
– Apply pressure as we place the shoes on the board
– Allow to dry overnight
– Stencil out the poster design from sketch book
– Color in stencils
– Draw artwork
When we arrived at class on the Big Day my daughter was so excited. We had achieved her vision and she was looking very professional with Business Cards and even a lanyard letting everyone know that She was their…
