We recently used Christmas money to purchase new end tables from an online retailer. The boxes were, of course, heavily stuffed with styrofoam to protect the tables from damage in shipping.
While Keith & I worked to rearrange the living room, we allowed the children to play with the packaging. We knew full well what sort of mess this could make, but every once in a while, you’ve gotta be ‘Fun Mom and Dad’…right?!
If our children ever say, “You never let us do anything fun!”…you’d better believe we’ll be referring them to this blog post!
Oh, this 30 minutes of fun turned into 45 minutes of cleaning up, restuffing boxes with larger pieces, and shop-vac-ing the smaller bits. We’re still finding bits of styrofoam in the house two weeks later!
(Jensyn was here…I have no idea why she’s not included in this pictures!)
