Making Toys

L is sleeping in this morning (after being awake & wiggling in my bed from 5-7 or thereabouts, yawn . . .) but a few minutes after A & I came downstairs she asked if she could go outside for a minute. I didn't pay much attention to what she was doing until she came over and asked for help. She'd gone outside & gotten 2 rocks and some sort of weed grass that has a helicopter looking thing at the top of the grass. She was trying to tie the grass to the rock in a way that would make it a toy helicopter. She had 2 of them so L could have one too. And she's now happily playing with her "helicopter". Tell me again why we as a society spend millions and millions (& probably trillions) of dollars on toys each year?

My husband has been bringing home small boxes from work that occupy the children for hours. You're right, who needs expensive toys?

LOL Ann, awhile back we were reading the Kim Kari & Kevin storybook and the story where the kids buy candy for their Dad's b-day & then eat it all so then Mommy makes them give him the empty candy box & "confess" my girls were totally baffled, they thought an empty box sounded like a GREAT gift LOL.
