Calvin's birthday!

Just so me and Sharlene don't forget, Calvin has helpfully marked his birthday in April.

Shaun the Sheep; pig character

Calvin found a model set he got for Christmas and decided to start making the pig character (don't know what it's called).

It's a bit of a cheat as there are bits of it that are plastic that you put the plasticine around. I think the snout and ears are plastic but I'm not really sure.

Chicken legs

Calvin's very slowly building the chicken in between other wee bits of work he's doing. In this picture you can see that he's making the legs from sweet wrappers, tin foil and strips of news papers. I think he's buying red or orange paint this weekend.

Calvin's inspiration

Here's a picture of toys Calvin's collected along the way. Lots of presents and pocket money.

His collection includes Ben 10, Simpsons, Lion King, Disney Cars, King Kong, Godzilla, Family Guy and Toy Story.

Family Guy chicken

Calvin is making the chicken from Family Guy. He's the character that usually rolls around on the floor with Peter Griffin whilst punching lumps out of each other.

He's made it from rolled up news paper, glue, silver paper and masking tape.

Not sure when he'll finish it but it's a pretty good start.
