Yesterday Will had a minor meltdown after I vetoed his proposal to paint his wooden blocks. Once he’d recovered from the agonizing disappointment of not getting to follow through with that scheme, he agreed that it might instead be fun to paint other objects destined for the recycling bin (and not likely to be mouthed on by Owen in the near future).
Will used tempera paint, crayons, glue, yarn and masking tape to construct this “house” made of a plastic milk jug, a paper-covered cereal box, a veggie burger box, some beverage bottles, a vitamin container and a deconstructed box of baby wipes. Now I’m finding it difficult to put anything in the trash. I just saved a toilet paper roll and a wine bottle cork in case Will's house needs extra chimneys or something as well as a squeeze bottle of lemon juice for a temporary bath toy.
What strange stuff do you turn into art or toys?
