Imagination Station

The other day, SaraGrace came up with a new form of entertainment.  This is a child who will take two sticks and pretend they are people--so her imagination is well developed.

She made little people out of paper, cut them out, and then made a whole village for them to play in.  Soon the other kids were intrigued and making little villages to add to hers.

They had birthday parties, mail with real envelopes, books...  anything their little minds could dream up.

Some drew cars...

Some made buses for their people to ride in.

They found some tape that had more than an inch left on the roll.  It made me wonder if they have 27 rolls of it squirreled away somewhere, since there is NEVER an available one when I need one.

The Duck Dynasty fans made a TV for their people.

Jordan made a dinosaur to go with his.

SaraGrace--of course--made a castle.

Here is a close-up of some of SaraGrace's people.

A close-up of their mail, flowers, and even a little picture book.

This kept them entertained for hours!  It amazes me what they can do with paper, scissors, tape, and a bit of imagination.

I love this!

Alyssa was like that when she was young with construction paper. she would make these elaborate costumes (solely out of construction paper and tape) for her brothers and herself and then they would put on a show. Great memories!

My daughter has done this too and then got her brothers into it. I was so impressed with what they came up with. The boys made things that involved dinosaurs and ninjas. M was all about the princesses and getting married.

Love it! Audrey just brought home 8 or 10 empty shoe boxes from my mom's house for the sole purpose of creating a city!!

Fabulously creative! I miss the days of Emma doing these things. 15 years old can be so hard somedays (smile). Thank goodness Josie still loves playing.
