Knock, knock!



Knock, knock!!
Who is it?
It's Mom! Can I visit?
No!
No?
(silence)

Knock, knock!!
Who is it?
It's Mom! Can you please open the door??
(silence)



OK!!!!

What are you girls doing in your house?



Oh, it's a doll shop! Nice outfits!



RJ2 says you need another style on this wall, CJ....

Gosh, is there anything better than playing in a cardboard box?....

With markers!!....

Especially when it's pouring rain outside....

and you don't have school....

and Mom and Dad had to go vote....

and you've already watched your morning TV....

Really, is there anything better than playing in a cardboard box?....







Well, only if you put the cardboard box on the kitchen table!




(Note to self: Do not work on PTA newsletter at computer while daughters are home in the pouring rain—having already had television—with a cardboard box and markers without turning around occasionally....)

This proves true fun...has nothing to do with pricey toys....!!

Oh and I won't be letting my little guys see that the coolest trend is to put the box on the table...hehe!

What fun! Some of the best toys aren't bought at a toy store for ridiculous prices.

Love this! My kids also LOVE playing in those cardboard boxes. :) Why do we buy them toys again? Seems that the boxes can entertail and encourage imagination a lot better than the electronic toys. LOL!

Have a great weekend.

Cardboard box, imagination, possibilities are limitless!

This looks like a recipe for a broken bone!!! I can see someone sailing off the back of the table. Or maybe that would be part of the game to climb up and roll off. This was so great! Totally fun kid day.

Just think, all we did at my house was go see HSM3.

Love it! It never fails. Kids can have hours and hours of fun in a big cardboard box!! It's wonderful to see our kids' imaginations engaged, isn't it?
