The weather around here has been less than optimal recently. We have had a few weeks of cold, windy and not good to play in, rain. I have struggled to keep the kids occupied. Yes, there have been a few marathon days of iCarly and Power Rangers Samarai but for the most part we have been having a good time playing together. Wanna know my trick?
My sanity was saved by the playclip!
These amazing wooden clips work just like huge clothespins and are easy enough for young children to manipulate. Around this house the main use of these clips is to hold our forts together.
|see how easily the fabric clips the the edge of a stool!|
Ava is the "foreman" of the job, shouting out random numbers and then writing furiously on her clipboard. Apparently we have passed her inspection and the fort is ready for action (or fake sleeping)
Oh, just in case forts aren't your thing, playclips can also be used as spiderweb shooters, nose pluggers, claws, earrings and oh so much more.
Gift idea!!! A fort kit.... a few flat sheets/scarves, a flashlight, a fantastic book and some playclips. I'm sure that any child (and many adults) in your life would love to receive this ..... I WOULD!
