I don’t think my kids like playing with toys as much as they enjoy playing with everything else. I guess it starts when they are babies and they want the crinkly wrapping paper or bag rather than the gift. They get a little older and empty boxes are the best toy ever! I think Mattel understood this and began marketing them this past Christmas.
Today my girls played with a laundry basket; it was their boat. They had the best time and I loved listening, from a distance, and snapping photos of their imagination at work.
They were in the boat together. Morgan was a mermaid and she was able to swim out of the boat and get some other supplies for the human. Emily was a scuba diver girl so she also could breath under water. They fell out of the boat, the boat got a leak, the sharks swarmed the boat – the list of adventures goes on and on.
What unusual objects do your kids enjoy playing with the most?
