Crafty

So far this morning I have been asked to create the following:

•A laser field for spys.    (Check.  Red yarn running back and forth through the dining room.)
•A museum elevator.  (Check.  Elevator doors, buttons, and display drawn on paper and hung on the stairs’ landing.)
•A teradactyl hanging from the ceiling.  (ummm…no.)
•A volcano that spits out fire and ash.  (Check.  Toybox emptied, construction paper crumpled, child placed in toybox to throw out paper.)

Can you tell the kids are feeling imaginative today??!?

Unfortunately, while imagination is a regular staple at our house, participation on my part is not.  I’m not a crafty person by nature, so any imaginative play that requires creativity on my part is often put off until “maybe tomorrow…”  I may be changing that, though, because look at what they’ve said:

“You know, Mom?  For doing this, I’m going to give you a kiss.  When Daddy sees this he’ll be amazed!”

“Thank you so much for doing this, Mommy!”

“Mommy, this is awesome.  How can I thank you?”  (You just did, pumpkin.  You just did.  Now go play a video game so I can blog.)
