No Humans Were Hurt...

in the taking of these pictures.

Recently, when both Brian and I were out of the house, our kids got online and found a recipe for fake blood.

They made it.

And it looked real.

So they let their imaginations go, and staged some 'scary' scenes.

And they were so proud of their work, they took pictures!

And even though it's kind of gross, I can't resist sharing their, uh, creativity with you.
Just remember, No humans were hurt in the taking of these pictures.
(But I can't seem to find my corn syrup. And my red food coloring is mysteriously low...)



Oh, yes. My children are so creative. *sigh*

lol....too funny. If it were my kids I could use it as a science homeschool lesson ;p

Mari said...

They do have great imaginations. And - it looks pretty real!

God's girl said...

Definitely looks real! I have to keep this page away from my sons!!! This stuff makes me want to vomit...but the "all boy" in them would say, "OH COOL!!! Mom, can we do that???" LOL

Um...if I ever need fake blood for something, I know where to come for the recipe:)

Hugs! Heaven

Betty-Jo - Elizabeth took a Forensics Science elective in school this year, and Joshua has signed up for it next year. I'm thinking this fake blood could fit in with a course like that!

Mari - And with all that corn syrup in it, I bet it tastes good, too. LOL!

Heaven - Just Google 'Fake Blood Recipe' and you'll find everything you need. *grin*

Gianna - Yes, my friend. This - and so much more!

Kelly - They sure do!

Debby Ann - That's the beauty of it. I was gone for the weekend when they did this, so Brian is the one who came home to see it.
True, I did find some 'dried blood' on the kitchen floor that they'd missed in the clean-up job. But that wasn't a big deal.
*grin*

O Mom said...

You are a brave Mom, I would have freaked out. I don't really know why, I just sense I would have. Again such a good reminder from you about parenting....sometimes they are just being good and creative!

Patricia/NYC said...

Wow!! Had I come home to that I would definitely have passed out!! lol!! I pass out when Kiara gets a nosebleed...seriously!!!

Very creative!! I'm thinking they will win some prizes for best costume next Halloween! ;)

Have a great weekend!!

Irritable Mother said...

O Mom - Yes. They enjoyed it so much - it really would have been a shame to come down on them for making a mess. (And using up all my corn syrup.)

Patricia - Nosebleeds give me the ickies, too.
And they did mention something about being inspired for Halloween. That ought to be interesting. LOL

Sal B said...

Ahhh, I would FREAK! My kids would love this though - too funny. How creative of them.

Finally answering your comment on my blog - you said you're Lansing way, right? No, I rarely get that way ever. But any time you're in the area, sure - I'd be game for a meeting :)

Have a great weekend!

Looks likes something my kids would do! Thanks for stopping by and visiting me!

Irritable Mother said...

Sal - Creative, indeed. *grin*
I visit my parents in Gaylord now and then. I am going to try to set something up with you on one of my trips up north!

Libby - You're welcome. It was nice to meet you!

Joy - I'm glad Amanda introduced you!

On Purpose said...

I have a feeling this is a 'look into my near future' HA!

km said...

Irritable Mother said...

Nichole - Don't say I didn't warn you! LOL

KM - My GIRL was, too.

Gotta love kids!

Jessica Nelson said...

Eeeke! What is going on in their brains!!! LOL I know someday my kiddos will probably do something equally gross.
LOL

Irritable Mother said...

Leslie - And, I do!

Jessica - So good to hear from you. I've missed you!
Just you wait, my friend. They surely will come up with something gross for your viewing pleasure. *grin*

Chris said...

That's hilarious! I'm surprised my boys haven't tried that. Creative kids - fun, interesting, but sometimes draining for Mom!

Irritable Mother said...

Chris - Ah...Give 'em time! *grin*
