I make peg people. My daughter now makes peg people too<3! She always has one in her pocket at school. She loves them. Last week she say eyes to bring home tiny pieces of paper in her backpack. It turned out that what I thought was just tiny pieces of paper where elaborate clothing outfits as well as accessories for her peg people that she and her friends were now making. Such cuteness! Well, we had a play date last week and my daughter wanted to play 'craft fair' and asked if she could use my display pieces for her and her fri ms to go shopping with. They loved playing and wanted to build a house for all the pegs. I didn't have anything big, but dug out a cracker box and a vanilla wafer box, gave the girls some tape, sisscors, and markers and let them build. They had so much fun making a house. The play date ended with the girls planning out the next play date and what they would create. So...today was another play date and before we had even left the school, the girls were asking me if I had boxes, what sizes, etc. When we got to my house my daughter and her friend were eyeing up all the boxes in my pantry. You could literally hear the gears turning in their heads. We ended up turning my iced coffee drink boxes into homes. I turned our dinner's Mac N' Cheese box into a home too:-). I wanted to make one so badly after seeing all of their fun! They were so happy and excited! They kept throwing ideas around with what could be drawn on the boxes. It was just so much fun! They figured out how to tape things up, where to cut, how to make the designed wrap around. Just so cool! Here are the pictures!!!!!
The part of it all is that they don’t see an empty box as garbage. They see a tree or a house, or a city, or a bed! I couldn’t be more proud! It’s also awesome how happy you can make children simply by letting them use some boxes.
Remember…They Will Love Your Effort<3.
