Today’s kids are growing up in a world full of I-pods, I-phones, Nintendo DS, and Wii. Impressing a seven year old is a LOT more difficult than it was when I was seven. I grew up on a farm. A baby kitten and a “blooming” dandelion impressed me. My kids can’t imagine how I survived a childhood where I had to actually GET UP to change the channel on the TV. I tell them that it wasn’t so bad because there were only three channels, so we didn’t change very often.
Painted it black and added a piece of gray card stock.
A little craft glue and some masking tape, and here you have meaningfull wall art for your kid’s room. You should’ve seen the SMILE on his face.
Want to know my husband’s idea for cheering up a child?
Playing catch. In the house. With a baseball. Yeah, a real one.
Tomorrow I may have to change this week from “broken leg week”, to “broken lamp week.”
