My son (4yrs) building a great machine in his room on a hill. I have no idea what that means or what the machine will do. So far there is a mountain of pillows and blankets (hill) and now he walking past my room with buckets and a cardboard box.
I hope it's not stating the obvious to suggest you keep a big box of recycling for him to use for 'creating'. Mine use milkbottle tops, cereal boxes, yogurt pottles, etc and I need shares in Sellotape company! Easier now that they are at school with less time for turning the house into an 'invention' factory!
Yes, I think I will have to do that. He also used my fish slice, ladle and rice drainner.
He also has a lot of time to do that at Playcentre too. Do not know where I would be without Playcentre.
Made a robot dog that catches comets the other day. He was directing the kids on what to do and what goes where. The whole session was making the dog.
Don't know what he has about trying to catch comets at the moment. Anything to do with space. It is never ending.
Story instructions at Playcentre to another mother that was there (I wasn't)
WWW.co.nz then press arrow keys and enter.
That was instructions to get to his comet.
But building and space themes seems to be the winning combo at the moment. Will have to get some more tape too.
I remember those days fondly as well. Other activities have taken over a bit now. The holidays are when the craft drawer and recycling bin take a hit nowadays.
I found this website the other day and wondering if it was still worth the investment for my girls now they are older. It just looks so cool to make recycled things with parts that move etc.
Also another thing that they spent hours playing with and incorporating into their games was the cranium fort
Hey Jan - that 'made-do' stuff that you supplied a website for looks so cool!!! Mine a little old at 9 & 11 - the 9 yr old is now into robotics that he can programme on the laptop and the 11yr old into baking, cooking and fashion design. However for little fingers that looks awesome and I would've invested in some a couple of years back! Would certainly save on the cellotape, glue and scissors!!
