We've been sending and receiving a lot of packages over the past week and my kids love to play with the boxes. Yesterday, my 4-year old brought me a couple boxes and wanted me to make him a "real" rocket, not a pretend one. He's been obsessed with this book lately. After ignoring his 50 requests I finally gave in. He told me what to do – I just had to cut and tape it together for him. It actually turned out pretty cool and he has been playing with it for hours. He even wanted to make a small one for his 1-year old brother (who loves climbing in and out of it). So much for the all the Christmas presents I've been buying. I should just wrap up some empty boxes!
