The box of the Paint-Your-Own Gnome kit says for ages eight and up. Less than twenty-four hours and the poor gnome has been destroyed. But, in all fairness, he was pestering the other clay gnomes and probably deserved what he got. I can tell from the smug looks on gnome #2 and gnome #3's faces that they were probably up all night planning the take down. Also want to note here that both of my kids are sleeping and for some reason I am blogging about my clay yard gnomes. I think I need help.
