Not All "Art Projects" Work Out


So our post this week, isn't your usual kind of craft but hey it's crafty! *Sorry for the blurriness of the photos. My camera phone is having issues or my hand is wobbly--not sure which.

We had a special event to attend yesterday evening so I decided to "sculpt" Jack's hair with mousse and hair spray.
He knew he looked good.

That evening when it was bath time, I discovered something.

Short hair with hair product goes nuts when it gets wet! We decided to have a little fun with all that messy hair product hair. We had it sticking up in various places then I had a brilliant idea!

A Faux Hawk!
Or not....
Well, we tried...maybe more hair product next time?

Love that idea. My kids love to play in the tub with the bath foam...

I can't do hair either! It's hard!

He is rocking the faux hawk!

My son like to gel his hair too - sounds like our boys like to be stylin' :)

Mary said...

Hee - I especially love the "looking good" photo. Apparently this sort of thing is very trendy. Maybe next time you can try something with a little colour? Coloured bubble bath (

Thanks, everybody.
Mommytoalot-ohhh...a sensory idea! We have bath foam too. He generally doesn't like to touch it but I could see what he did if I put it on his head.
TBD-I can't do hair either. That's why mine is long and straight and I like to keep the guys short. Jack's hair is actually longer than it's ever been but Dave says they will go get that fixed tomorrow. :)
Jennifer-glad you liked our attempt. Hair gel is another sensory idea I could try! And if it actually kept his hair in place, that would be awesome. We need to come south for a visit. We could all the hit beach and Jack could get musical tips from the girls and hair tips from the boy!
Mary-I'll have to check that site out. We are concentrating on learning colors right now--not sure if Jack can distinguish colors. I'm all about fun learning!

Looks like Rico Suave-a lol. How cute!

Mammatalk said...

Love the 'do. And, it looks like you two had some fun.

Marie said...

Sheila--Rico Suave-a?!!? That is too funny!!!!
Rachel--it is fun. Who knew? Well I guess all of you with girls. :)
Mammatalk--I cannot lie--it was mostly fun for me but hey he's a good sport. :)

Aww, I love the faux hawk. I'm terrible about doing hair. My daughter has beautiful straight hair, and I can never get it to look right.

Childlife said...

Hair gel sculpting -- I love it LOL! :D Looks like Jack was having a grand time too :) I think you two win the MMM creativity award for your post this week!

Thanks, Michelle. And here I was thinking I hope we don't get in trouble for bending the rules a bit. I'm going with your thought. We're creative!!!
