DON'T CALL THE ATF

My son Eli is always doing something with his hands. He loves to draw, paint, and build things. Yes, and he is the one who painted the clown. Seriously, give him some regular paper, tape (any kind), and scissors and he will come up with some pretty creative things! And it's amazing how he really pays attention to detail. If I saved everything he made, my house would be decorated with paper objects.

One of his favorite things to make are guns. We're talking machine guns, rifles, pistols, and whatever else kind of guns are out there. I don't even know their names.

He made a "set" the other day and I just had to take a picture of them because after a few days he's on to something new, and they just get thrown in the garbage.

I don't know what the name of the one on top is, but the one on the bottom is obviously a machine gun.

His sniper rifle and bazooka. I think that's what it's called.

Look at the detail of those bullets!

Who knows, his future may be weaponry design.

You get bonus points from me for posting that!! I'm so tired of people with their noses in the air judging everybody - can you tell I'm venting??? He IS very creative and I think you're an awesome mom ~ ♥

Parsley said...

He's quite the artist and so creative! I would call the NRA because they'd be proud of his design. It's the ATF you need to worry about and frankly... well, I better not go down that road. Let's just say it's another government agency that I'm not too fond of.

Mama Zen said...

Wow! Those are really good!

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

Boys and guns, I swear no matter what you do they are fascinated with them. My boys are constantly creating guns out of legos and K'nex. Your son is very creative with his - very impressive!

I am very impressed. Such cool art! Great job! What is it with boys...they can turn anything into some sort of weapon. lOL

Just A Mom (Call me JAM for short) said...

Boys are so funny like that! I remember when mine was little I wouldn't buy guns for him because I thought they were kind of violent. Didn't matter, he did like your son did and would make them out of whatever was handy!

Muthering Heights said...

Wow, he did a very good job...your family is so artistic!

Mostlygrocery said...

Forget ATF! Call MIT, that boy is going to be an engineer!@

Stephanie said...

Wowzers!!!!!!!

I'm amazed at his creativity! Those bullets are insane!

Nina said...

I just love the creativity that they can produce sometimes. So cute, even if it is a weapon. LOL....

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Wow! Definitely talent here! It is so good that you have photos of all he's created! I remember when our son was first born, I did not want an toy guns for him to play with. ...but at 18 months, seriously??? he would hang on to the arm of our couch and make shooting noises! haha
...or pick up anything (like a stick) and pretend... so for his 2nd birthday, one of his gifts he got was a set of cowboy guns and a holster!
How different our daughters and son were. The girls were girly-girls! And our son...even when he was itty-bitty, he was all about balls, cars, etc...

Blessings & Aloha!
