Project 365 Day 8

Blogger has been playing up today but here is todays photo. No time to write more except to say this little piece of lego kit has had DS2 really engrossed in building for the last week. It has all the parts for a helicopter and raft.

Project 365 Photo 7

Boxes...what are they? The online diction says....A container typically constructed with four sides perpendicular to the base and often having a lid or cover....I think that it is something used for storage and often made of cardboard.

In my house the cardboard variety is none of those things. It is for hiding in, a house, cave, car, plane, hats and of course my children use them for storage. Giggles and squeals of delight are always to be heard when playing with never ending supply of big boxes in our house. Happy faces and grins on all faces until the children either have to pack up at the end of the day or tensions rise and the game is abandoned.

Why is it that adults limit their idea of what a box can be used for. I wonder what happens to children when they mature into adulthood and where that wonderful imagination goes to.

Anyway enough of my musings here is my photo.
