It’s a Box…No, It’s a Fort
A couple of months ago CommuterGirl discovered that she loves the Swiffer. We quickly took one of the sections out of the handle so that it was “CommuterGirl-size.” She loves it. Daughter and Daddy…swiffering side-by-side.
It got me thinking about how I use household/everyday items to entertain my daughter.Why spend $40 on a tent when you can make one out of pillows and a blanket? Our society is so quick to buy things and use them for one specific purpose rather than being creative and using our imagination.
I admit, I’m not very good at that type of creativity — CommuterDad has a much better imagination than I. He has taught me that pots and pans are drums and paper towel tubes make great horns. And, last night, CommuterGirl and I had a puppet show with socks.
What creative ideas do you have for everyday household items?
