So, I accumulated a bunch of supplies, mostly used, and threw them on the dining room table. With only a little brainstorming with Colin and Lila, Caleb came up with the idea of depicting our cabin from DCamp – Rainbow Ridge:
He included test strips as stairs, batteries as smoke detectors (I guess there were smoke detectors in the cabin, but I don’t remember), a sun, boats off to the right and lancets representing our family, the two other families, the counselors who bunked in the loft and the nurse coming through the open Pod-door for BG checks and insulin.
Colin created a simple test strip homage to camp:
Lila made what she called a Pod Blob:
Then she was inspired to create a game of chance that works as follows (for 2 or more players):
– Select a Pod.
– If the Pod has a test strip stuck to the bottom, you get to keep it and take another turn. If there’s no strip, play continues to the next player.
– The player with the most Pods at the end of the game, gets the batteries in the middle as a prize.
Here’s Caleb with a WaveSense winner:
And Lila with a Freestyle one:
I joined in and made a simple flower:
In the middle of it all, Caleb rocked the 100!
Colin, Caleb and Lila were amazingly excited about what they could do with these supplies. It was a fun time. Thanks Lee Ann for the inspiration! Happy Diabetes Art Day to all!!
