It’s always fun watching little kids play. I mean, sometimes it’s also incredibly frustrating, because they’re dismantling your furniture and won’t stop slapping the cat…but it’s always fascinating to see how they re-purpose the items in their lives to make them more suited to play.
The table my Mr. made has small spaces in the supporting legs that are just perfect for a train or car to drive through. Both boys take advantage of it, but R is at just the right size where it’s one of his favorite places to play.
I took G outside to play while R slept the other afternoon, and gravel around some pavers became a mountain for his car to climb, and a puddle in a tree root became a lake for his boat.
