33 shopping (making) days...

Due to the early Thanksgiving day and extra early "Black Friday" we have a very long holiday shopping season this year. Save your money. Creative kids like cardboard boxes better than the toys that might come in them. Those toys are often creatively designed to override the child's creative play. And when the relationship with an object is overly scripted, can we even call that play? The video below shows how much extra fun you can have with creative materials instead of toys.

 

On the other hand readers still have 34 creative days to make toys and gifts before Christmas day.

Make, fix and create...

Kids always like the boxes the toys came in. They can make anything they can dream out of a cardboard box. My sons will no doubt be terribly embarrassed when they find some of their creations squirreled away in my shop years from now.
