Spinning up Wordless/Wordful Wednesday - Thanksgiving Teepee and Hieroglyphics

I was hoping Princess Nagger would be bringing home some cool art she did in school to assist me in the Wordful/Wordless Wednesday post for today.  She didn't disappoint!  The two days she had school this week, she brought two different art projects home.  On Monday, she brought home this cool Native American Hieroglyphic she did on brown paper (wrinkled to look like an animal skin):

The translation is:

"10 days climbing up mountains hunting deer and fish for my friends at the lake."

I think she did an outstanding job! 

On Tuesday she brought home this really cool Teepee:




It's made out of half a soft tortilla fastened with a toothpick, the wood poles are pretzel sticks stuck together with frosting, and the hieroglyphics drawn on with food coloring.  The translation for this is:

"10 days climbing up the mountains with my friends for the feast at the lake."

What cool Thanksgiving decorations we have for this year thanks to Princess Nagger!  She's supervising this post over my shoulder and wanted me to pass on this message to you:

"Try making this cool Teepee!"

I sure love that kid!

Native Americans consider Thanksgiving as "The beginning of the end"... It all worked out though, they own casinos- and I lose to them a lot!
Happy T-day!

That is some nice looking art work. I really like the teepee.

Sprite's Keeper said...

I completely agree with the arts and crafts! Sprite brought home her first turkey handprint picture! I immediately taped it onto our fridge, I was so excited. Today, they're making headbands which I will probably bring to our Thanksgiving dinner to show off. You're linked and PN is right, that teepee is COOL!

is it wrong to want to eat part of a teepee?

Hope you, Princess Nagger and all of the extended family have a wonderful Thanksgiving - without having to live in a teepee.
