We looked on the internet for ideas. You can find soooo many ideas there. But Garrett wasn't really excited about any of them.
He kept wanting to do a school bus, but Mom (who is always worried about everyone FEELINGS) thought he might not like it when he got to the derby and everyone had cooler cars.
I know....MOM, RELAX!
But Garrett's biggest interest right now is not sports cars. It's Diary of a Wimpy Kid. He can draw the the characters as good as the author can!
So a school bus was the perfect thing for him to showcase his interest AND his drawing skills!
Drawing on wood was super hard. I ended up having to copy all of Garrett's drawings that he'd do on a paper. But I copied exactly what he drew and put where he told me to. So, it's essentially all Garrett's design!
