My dad used to take me to scale model conventions when I was a kid. He loved building models and he loved the conventions even more. It's a pretty obscure hobby so I'm sure he liked the company.
A ton of scale model enthusiasts packed into one space, sharing all their model knowledge and cool creations? Yeah, he was definitely at home at those conventions. By the way, you think they're all tiny but they're not. They're scale so some of these are pretty large. Take a look at the pics; maybe you'll join the model world!

“The scale models at conventions are so neat-looking.”
I love to do crafts, and I love, love, LOVE craft time with my girls! One of their favorite activities to do (and to be honest, one of my faves, too) is playing with clay modeling. They love all of the colors!
Since my kids are super into Legos, I figured I'd have them try their hands at building some plastic model kits. There are a lot to choose from: airplanes, cars, boats, etc. I got them each an airplane kit.
