The other day, we got a large box in the mail.  I knew it would go to the recycling bin but decided that we could have a bit of fun with it first.  With a bit of tape and box cutter we had ourselves a little house.  The highlight of the afternoon though, was painting it.  I got out a paint roller and let them go to town.  I must say, Henry’s rain jacket hasn’t been quite the same since (washable only sort of means washable) but it was well worth it.

I really should have gotten a shot of the finished product. It was lovely, colorful and entertained us for an entire afternoon. But alas, recycling day was yesterday.
