If you give a kid a box…

Don’t you love how creative children are? If the kids are asking what to do, I’ll often just plop down a bin of crafting supplies and they make the most random things. A stick, leaves and mud… A fairy kingdom! And a box… Well, you never know what a box will become….

  1. Are you familiar with the two books Not a Box and Not a Stick by Antoinette Portis? They are intended for children slightly younger than your girls, but I had lots of 5th and 6th graders in my library who adored them – which is always the way. I don’t believe there’s any such thing as a “children’s” book anyway, but I digress. Check them out at your library if you’re not already familiar with them.

    • Cool! If we are near the public library, I’ll have them look them up for us.

      Oh, I remember being stuck and waiting for a visa!! For some fresh air, check out the gardens on the Debre Zeit road, just out of Addis 🙂
