Last week my grandson returned from visiting his Mom on the east coast for the summer. On Monday he started his first day of kindergarten and I had the privilege of being there for the big day!
The first three days of school were a phase in, so the kids only went for an hour. Sine mom and dad both had to work, I watched the grandson. But what to do? I did not want to spent the day inside in front of the TV set. As we drove home I came up with an idea based on a piece of string and the toy G. I. Joe we found stuffed in a pocket of the backseat. I found an empty box in the garage and pulled out my paints. Xavier had fun painting sky and grass in the box.
A quick trip out the back door yielded sticks and stones which we hot glued into the box. Add sting and toy men and a bit of imagination and you have one happy kindergartner! That took care of one day, but I still had to keep him occupied the next day…I know! How about a trip to the Reid Park Zoo!
But it was very hot and Xavier soon lost interest in the animals…
