My oldest son Justin (20) found a need to buy a new car stereo. He seems to find this need every year or so. This time, he installed it himself at home. Robbie (9) was right there with him helping out wherever he could. In other words....getting in the way and asking a bunch of questions. Luckily, Justin didn't mind. Maybe Robbie will pick up a few hints along the way.
When the installation was done, Robbie had a new "toy" to play with! I let him keep it for 2 weeks. It was too large to keep around any longer!
He turned it into a monster cave...a store ( a way to get money from Mom)...a secret hideout...and a few other things I'm sure. I think it was a boat on top of his bed at one point too. Who knows, he has a great imagination.
Just like the old saying I always heard when the big kids were little ~ Why spend lots of money on toys, when all they want to play with is the boxes?
This counts as a homeschool activity too! He drew pictures inside and made up wonderful stories to tell Mom all day...for many days!
