Paint them up like zombies and go for a walk in the woods! And that is exactly what we did. A few weeks ago we had a school carnival where Eli discovered face painting. He was a clown and fell in love. Then we went to a local crafts store and he found a pack of face paints and I bribed him to be good in the store and I would buy them. He was good. Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day in Oregon (a somewhat rare occurrence) and I didn't have to work. Eli has been begging me to do zombie paint for a few days and so I bribed him again (I don't really consider what I do , bribery, I like to think of it more as compromising. I get what I want and he gets what he wants, little does he know that even if he didn't let me take his picture I would have painted them and tried my hardest to sneak pix in!). This time I told him that if I painted him like a zombie he would let me take pictures of him (he hates having his picture taken, but loves taking pictures, weird kid, go figure) with my camera I got for my birthday and haven't really used. He agreed and I started painting. His little brother, Asher, wants to do whatever he is doing so he also became a zombie.
After lots of paint and repeated, "mom, more blood, zombies have lots of blood." The boyos were happy with their living dead appearance. I grabbed the camera and we were out the door. This is what we ended up with.

They were very happy with their adventure. Eli kept asking me to take his picture and Asher kept telling me that if bears come he would protect me by eating the bear's brains. Awe....such a sweety! There is a park at one end of the trail and the boyos were a hit with all the other kids. They promised that next time they come, they would bring the paints and I would do them all up like zombies.

What super little zombies. They can come into my garden any time. You did  a great job of their faces. It looks like you all had a lot of fun.
