Yesterday we had a new dishwasher installed and the installer left the box for the girls to play inside. Then today swim team was cancelled because they had to do some maintenance on the pool. So, we had an extra hour this afternoon to fill. So, the girls and I took that big empty cardboard box and some paint and made a "castle." They had never used "real paint" and "real brushes" before, so that was a treat for them.
When Robby got home, the girls immediately ran to him and told him we made a castle. Then Robby made a door and windows for the castle.
It is way too small for them both to sleep in there at night, so I told them that one of them can sleep in it for a nap during the day, but not overnight. This project has turned out to be a great learning experience for them in imagination. It is also the largest craft we have ever done.
