The project that had him concerned was the need to create nametags for the bedroom doors for the incoming students. Since he would not receive his list of residents until Saturday and the doors had to be decorated by Monday and he had no idea if he would have all male residents or one apartment of males (his) and five apartments of females or some mixture in between, he was feeling some pressure to get this accomplished in a limited amount of time.
As part of his RA duties, he had to develop a program plan of activities and socials with a central theme. He chose the theme "Super Team for a Super Year". Quite appropriate for my son who comes by his nerdiness genetically. His first thought was to print images of superheroes from the internet, but he started thinking of the time and cost of ink and variety needed to do this. I suggested we use my Cricut and the Paper Doll Dress-Up cartridge to create generic superheroes that he could use.
While Rick and the other kids helped him pack and move apartments, I cut out paper dolls and their clothes. After fifteen plus hours of cutting, two blades, a new mat, and I don't know how many hours of putting together once he had the list, this is what he had:
|Hunter was really excited with the way these turned out and he said they went |
together faster than expected. He is afraid he may have set the bar too high.
|He even did his first bulletin board to match.|
And for all of you that may wonder, we utilized as much of each sheet of paper as possible and what we couldn't use we recycled.
