A few days ago, I took a paper sack of recyclables I had been saving and dumped them in the middle of our playroom floor with some glue and tape. For 2 days, the kids walked around and over the pile without seeming to notice any of it. Finally, one of them said,"What's this here for?"
"I don't know--what do you think you could do with it?"
What resulted was a great building project by both kids, though Oliver ultimately decided not to glue his together. Levi built a Pokemon computer, pictured above.
