Before I had kids, I worked for the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Specially, I worked the Camp Invention program.
It’s been almost 5 years since I worked full time for camp. Now, I am busy raising my own little campers. Many days we have craft sticks, boxes, paper, markers, tape, scissors, glue, paper bags and more out in our house as the kids experiment and create.
Recently, Nick started wanting to build more “real” things from his designs. Some safety goggles were in order. Sally and Nick were both excited when they arrived.
Most of our toys are used as part of creations. They are rarely used for their intended purpose.
It’s awesome. It’s messy. It’s fun. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
