two boxes

two boxes
These two boxes provide my girls countless hours of fun this weekend. The box has tranformed from car to boat to house to slide and lot of other things in between. Oh! And the balls of foil they are holding can be deceiving because it isn't just any foil... no sir, those are moon rocks! I tell you, non-toys are way more fun and engaging that real toys.

What did your kids (or you) play with this weekend? Me? My sewing machine. all. weekend. long.

  1. What a great photo. I agree non-toys are way more fun. My daughter amused herself with a shoebox, some tracing paper, and some tupperware containers for a good afternoon. I should save my money on toys and just give her a recycling bin to play with.

  11. boxes make for the best toys! i think you all would love the book, Christina Katerina and the Box. Fabulous 70's illustrations and a fun story about a creative little girl and her giant new box.

  13. What a great photo! Our favorite "non-toy" is the fort. One can build one EVERY day of the week (we KNOW that first hand!) and no one fort is like another!
