Spark's Imagination

Spark is pretty creative with ordinary household items and stuff he finds in the yard or shed.  Here are some examples I saw this Sunday.
I got up and went to get a drink of water and saw a vegetable brush with eyes and a smile looking at me.  In this picture Spark has posed them how he likes them.  The brush has a friend, a dish soap dispenser (it's missing an eye), it's important to have the Aloe Vera behind to make arms.

We have a small faucet in the kitchen that bypasses the water softener so we can enjoy tasty, mineral laden drinking water.  The faucet sometimes has a slow drip.  Spark devised this "viaduct" to capture the leaking water.  It is made of bending drink straws.

A support to hold up the longest run of pipe

A shot glass (actually a small measuring cup) to catch the errant liquid.  By the way, the little receptacle did not hold all the water that dripped out while we went to church and grocery shopping.  There was a puddle on the counter and floor to clean up.  There are many other odd creations we see every day, the acorn and cork combination he calls the genderless super hero (a topic for another post), for example.  I don't know what he will do when he grows up but I hope it is something creative.

That is hilarious!

We have that two but it is the form of legos and cars and magnetic things.

Also watch out when getting up in the middle of the night...those things kill the feet if stepped on while half asleep!
