Goliath... because we do nothing half way

So back in October Mum taught the preschool age group at church and she wanted to make a life sized Goliath... Well she wanted a Goliath I am not sure that she actually asked for it to be life size... I tend to hear what I want to hear... and do what I want to do... 
So we ended up using canvas that I happened to have in my stash and a projector that we borrowed to blow up a Goliath image that I found on the internet, to help us get a general idea of a giants dimensions.

Then we altered the drawing to our liking and we all picked different spots and started painting. We found a few other images to help with inspiration on things like the outfit and scary giant face. 

And here he is hanging in the room... he is of course to large for the room so his head had to go up on the ceiling. The kids seemed to appreciate the effort ... especially since Mum brought in slings and foam rocks for them to try their hand at... 

I've been spending a lot of time working on the resource room at our building. I really should probably have blogged about the process because hopefully it will be awesome in the end as it is a relatively decent sized room that will hopefully soon be a one stop shop for our teachers to create activities that will help them teach kids about God and the Bible. It may not be interesting to everyone from that stand point but maybe from a craft room standpoint it will have some interest?


  1. This is incredible. You guys are amazing. We need one of those for our resource room.

  2. That fact that you do what you want is totally amazing to me.....:-) But you are pretty amazing. I need to know how your mom did the foam rocks. Maybe you could send pictures of sling and rocks.

  3. This is AMAZING! I really want to see the finished room. My real mom helped paint murals at my daycare when I was 3-4 and I can still picture it in my mind. Not many memories of that time but I remember that! I know your kids are going to be super artistic not only because everyone in your family is but because they have seen you do it and will want to do what you do. This is really cool that you're doing this for the church and who cares if it's religious. Post it!

  4. What a wonderful idea to show the kids how big Goliath was. He turned out great.

  5. Such a cool idea! The kids can really see how big he was!

  6. I like it! Kids are such literal thinkers, that is the best way to teach them...I like the slings and foam rubber rocks, too LOL!

  7. Ok, you two are just ridiculous. But in a good way. I definitely want to see that room, so please post!
