Today I wore a wool sweater, scarf and my faux-uggs around the house, trying to think of fun indoor activities to avoid a chilly afternoon outing to the playground. The blue painter’s tape came out and a wonky train track was born.
Simple, fun and cheap.
Graham’s eyes lit up when he watched an ordinary tape roll turn into an impromptu train track on our kitchen floor. We even made a little shed to hold their animals (not pictured). Unfortunately, I ran out of tape about a third of the way through finishing the railway ties. G was disappointed, but we compromised with some string, which he used to link the trains together. Simon was digging it too, along with his snack of cherry tomatoes which have officially been added to his A-list, just like his big bro.
Now, Mr. Sun, this does not mean you are off the hook. When are you coming back to these parts?
