Delectable Color Challenge - Nathan's go to the goOAAALLLLL!

As always our Taylor has brought to the June InStyle Stamp Color Challenge table a delectable palette and something to satisfy our tastes! Really now, didn't she just bring the best colors, YUM!

It is amazing that I picked out my image without any thought into what day it is in the world soccer arena. Today, the USA and England stepped on to the pitch for FIFA World Cup 2010. However, I did figure out the coincidence early enough to color Nathan in one of Team USA's uniform colors.

My project today is for my two children who are always investigating and trying new ways to play with old things. In fact on the second day into summer my two sweeties dumped two shelves worth of DVD's onto the floor, made a luggage train from the closet to the bathroom where they decided to clean the bathtub with a bar of soap in their pajamas (my son also decided he would prepare his hair for bath later that night by rubbing the bar on his head. He'll just add water later...LOL), and then later stuck a magnet into the USB port of my computer! So here, hopefully, is a game that will keep them going in the brain developmental.

It's a magnet game of soccer. I've placed Nathan on a strong round magnet and then another one underneath the playing field. The practice cones are moveable so my sweeties can set up any practice drill and then try and get Nathan through it. All they need to do is move the magnet underneath and Nathan just goes to the GOALLLLLLL!

Watch soccer Nathan cut right, cut left, volley and celebrate making the goal:

Have a great day!
