We are already starting week three of the summer. The older three have been in camp for the morning and then during nap time, the bigs and I try to do something together that isn’t technology or television related (admittedly, there is still a lot of that going on!)
The girls have great imaginations and require a lot of space for creative outlets. At least that’s what I tell myself when they go through a ream of paper, roll of tape, destroy yet another stapler and hang illustrations on every vertical surface in my house. In a week. Please tell me this is normal.
We spent some time building a YOXO DOON. We powered through a little frustration because the directions were only pictures (I guess we shouldn’t let her buy anything from IKEA) and got to work.
We started with the axels and moved through to the body of the doon.
The most important part is that we were spending time doing something together with a common goal.
Thank you to YOXO® (yock-so) for sending a gift card to check them out. It is the sustainable, recyclable, made-in-the-USA, invent-everything-you-can-imagine toy company that’s now available at your local Target and specialty toy retailers. YOXO creative construction kits use interchangeable chipboard connectors in Y, O, and X shapes to construct infinite creations, including the YOXO Heroes.
What fun did you have this week?
