winter busy-ness

"Boys, please put all of these oranges in this other box for mommy"
"Okay now put them in this box" (conveniently located in a completely different room.)

They were busy for an hour sorting and re-boxing oranges.  
I kid you not.
Well, they might have also pretended they were bowling.

More Play out of the Dough

my sister getting crazy with the play-do over christmas break.

When we were visiting my sister in law Sarah during the fall,  Max and his Cousin Benson sat down with some play-do.  I over heard Sarah telling them to make little beds for the animals.  I thought it was a great idea.  You could use any plastic toy really, little people, animals, army guys.  You could make beds, nests, a pool, a cave.

Max ended up burying mounds of animals into a giant blob of play-do.  That was a fun idea too.  He had just as much fun pulling the play-do apart looking for the animals.  You could do it with a sibling or a friend and each have a wad and bury little trinkets and let the other one "dig" them out -- like they were archeologists or something.

I love stretching what I already have.
