You know what is my favorite part about living in “party land”? Getting to see things through the excited and imaginative eyes of a child. Ordinary, even mundane aspects of our real world (like cardboard boxes) are AMAZING in little kid land. My daughters can play with a box for hours like its the greatest toy ever. Sometimes I wonder why I bother to buy them anything at all… I just need some bubble wrap and a cardboard box and that’s better than an iPad.
***Thank you to everyone who has ever mailed us anything packaged with bubble wrap, by the way. You have entertained my children for countless hours***
But seriously…I had an “ah-ha” moment the other day when I was driving home from picking up my daughter at school. There is this intersection that has been under construction FOREVER!! I DREAD this intersection as traffic slows down so much. We are sitting in a long line of equally aggravated adults when I hear my kids in the backseat oohing and aahing over something outside. SO of course, I quickly turn to see what is so amazing to them….There was this huge crane lifting a very large piece of metal something or other onto the freeway overpass.
You would have thought it was Princess Ariel for all the excitement that came from the backseat. To me….annoying delay in my schedule. To my kids…amazing gravity defying magic machine. See…don’t you just love kids. They keep it real.
In honor of my “ah-ha” I’m sharing some fun and inventive ways to throw an amazing construction party.
First up….this is seriously one from keriene of my favorite tutorials ever…Not only is this a cool construction vehicle, but it’s made from a cardboard box….you know that’s right!
