They are our boxes with recycling, cardboard, syrofoam trays and what not. Things that children can use to build toys and other such useful items.
My goal was to empty them enough that we could close the lids on all the boxes keeping it all nice and tidy. We succeeded.
His first 3-5 times ended with unhappiness...they worked but not well enough to be effective OR they simply didn't do what he wanted them too.
He kept trying and sometimes would ask for "why didn't it work mom?" Eventually he came across this idea AND it works and works well.
Supplies: Pringles container, paper clip, bottle, wooden skewers, duct tape and elastics.
He did at one point ask.. Mom.. what do you think would happen if I aimed it at a person? Do you think it would go through?
NO.. NO.. NO... No weapons ever aimed at people bud... Come on.. think about it.
Well .. do you think it would hurt them?
Oh.. okay. I won't shoot anyone. I just wanted to know.
Give a mother heart palpitations eh?
So tell me this... Do YOU have throw-away boxes in your house? If so, what do you call it/them?
