So, my job is doing another creative activity for the holidays. Last year I designed a tiny ugly sweater. This year’s activity is to create a sculpture out of sugar cubes. Actually carving and sculpting a sugar cube became too much of a hassle, so I sat down with a pen and paper and designed this penguin. Actually figuring out how many cubes are needed per level, they also gave us a cardboard base. I glued my cubes then painted them with black puffy paint and glued a black cardstock back with a tail. Glued an orange cardstock beak and black cardstock wings on the side. Stapled an inner sleeve funnel of cardstock for the hat and glued ribbon around the hat topping with a cotton ball. There is a simple ribbon scarf wrapped around his neck. He is then glued to the base which I glued blue paper for water and gave him orange cardstock feet. With a few more snow fort cubes and cotton ball snow. I could possibly win one of four gift cards for this creation. Honestly, I did it for the challenge. I am actually pleased with this holiday creation. It will be judged next Friday.
