So, we all know the stories of the young children who are given all sorts of glorious gifts, only to find greater joy with the box or bag that they came in. When the boys were younger, we certainly experienced it. But I thought we'd moved on. After all, there were glorious Legos and keyboards and such. But, once again, this year another box has stolen the heart of my boys.
This box, though, is no ordinary box. Through the hard elving work of one Dad and one oldest child, a magic space rocket was created for the little one. Crafted on a sick day and a morning of errand running, our two space engineers combined boxes, paint, and aluminum foil to create this wonderful play space. And while the excitement upon the gifting was wonderful, the play that has followed has been even better.
It's so fun to see what a few household supplies and energy can create. . I'm ready to go round up another box just to see what we can build next. And this time I want in on the fun!
