Mommy Monday

I decided to do a "Coolest Mommy on the Block" gig every Monday - mostly to force myself to take pictures and document my good days. ;o) And if anyone wants to copy and make a kid's day, feel free!

Need something to do with all that cardboard laying around? Make airplanes. Minimal preparation, maximum enjoyment.

You're good for at least forty-five minutes of insane happiness. Feel free to add "tails" for a bird variation.

That's brilliant. I'm totally doing this. My boys will FREAK out :)

That is so cute! We made airplanes once out of big boxes - my husband drew the cockpit "instruments" on the flap. This looks so neat too - their very own wings. Good for you!

Great idea! How are they secured to the arms? You creative people make me so jealous!

Whee... That is a real take off for some boxes. Cheap fun that has lasting power. UP UP and away boys.

Cardboard boxes are better than any toy. My kids turn them into ships and push each other around the house, pretending there are sharks all around and the like. What a great idea to do a kids day!
