A pail of nails, a few wood pieces, hammers, and a few metal gadgets like wheels and clamps and our kids were in Heaven. While Mike was making Mason's Halloween mask he put all these things on the floor and said to the kids " Use your imagination and make something". The twinkle in our kids eyes was amazing. Hailey made a cross/ sword depending on her mood I guess. Mason made a car (a flat board with wheels nailed into it) and Cati & Lily just hammered into the wood. They were preoccupied for about 2 hours with this. So during that time Mike and I were able to accomplish alot on our "To-Do" list.
I thanked Mike for seeing a need for the kids needing something to do and for encouraging their creativity.
