Today I had some left over cardboard boxes. Big ones, small ones, and some pizza boxes. I also had some left-over paint from Christmas decorations (home made ones that I meant to post but never got around to it.)
So, the boys used these said boxes and painted, and decorated them and then poked holes in the faces so that they could put them over their heads like robots. It's actually really cute.
I didn't like the paint all over my dining room floor, but that is what we bought laminate for in the first place.
I am learning to let go, and just let them explore, regardless of how messy it can be.
