Yesterday was marvellous. I had ordered this pattern blocks kit from Scholastic (the joys of points from Scholastic for doing book orders!) and I decided to get it out to see what everyone thought. An hour later, Pk was whining because she wanted to keep playing and I wanted her for some homework and when dinner arrived, Lb threw a tantrum because he didn't want it to be put away. They talked about shapes, they made the shapes on the tiles and, best of all, they made "Shapeville Parks" using the shapes. Dh actually came upstairs to see what was going on since it was so quiet.
I think I've been inspired to try an afternoon quiet play time - now, to find a range of toys that are only allowed then and we can spend that time together. I can't wait!
