One of our favorite things to do around here is to make a gigantic mess. Over the weekend I let my kid spill out a giant box of packing peanuts and he rampaged around in them breaking them up into impossible to clean up clingy little evil chunks.
Just now i let him dump out a huge box of packing paper. He made a lair out of the box and then rampaged around in all the paper throwing it everywhere. My blind cat is a tad disturbed to say the least.
Last week I ordered some Crayola window crayons from Amazon. Okay, okay, it’s not indie AT ALL to order a Crayola product from the internet but it has been super fun and I highly recommend it for grownups and for kids.
I wish I had taken a photo of my “the Great Escape” scene… I did find this awesome site called Artful Kids and you can check out her post about her adventures with window crayons. this site has lots of fun kid art projects!
