Making Life A Little Cheesier One Cheeto At A Time

2013-05-08 19.05My friends over at Life of Dad are holding a little unorthodox art contest.

The Challenge: Create an art masterpiece with the contents in a bag(s) of Cheetos Mix-Ups snacks.

The Payoff: A chance to win a trip to Dad 2.0 2014.  (Yes please!)

I gathered my children around me (well, my child. The Boy refused to put down Skylanders but my Baby Girl was more than happy to help. We both washed our hands, rolled up our sleeves, and thunk. We thunk real hard about what to make. I originally thought about making a spiral galaxy, thinking that the “traditional” Cheetos puff curved shape would lend itself well to that.  However, my daughter had other designs…

“Let’s make an oval with those shapes and then a circle inside the oval…”

Me: “Huh”?

She started making the oval with the curved puff pieces and I asked her if she thought it looked like a cloud. After a little while, we knew what we were going to do.

 

BEHOLD!

That’s it. That’s our masterpiece. Will it win? Probably not but it was fun to create with my artsy daughter.

It also helps that these taste pretty good. I’m a big fan of the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos
snacks already, and I bring them home way too often. When I offered Samantha some of the Cheetos Mix-Ups, she declined (I’m guessing she could tell by the color of the deep red ones that they were spicy).

Why don’t you head on over to the contest page on Life of Dad, and then come back here and let me know what you think of our masterpiece compared to that others…?
