I tried to think out of the box. I really wanted to be creative.
Maybe it's too hot to be that creative.
So, we settled on two classics:
Nathan has recently moved on from Duplos to "big boy" Legos. We spent a considerable amount of time this week being Brickheads.
Today, we went through the craft crates to find plastic things. Nathan settled on plastic beads. (I know these have a name, but can't remember it.)
Finished creations: flower, heart, house and necklace. (A warm iron can be used to slightly melt the beads together into the finished shape, but Nathan likes to dump the beads back in the bucket and use them again.)
Next theme: old. I'm sure we can come up with some fun things for that!
