James likes to build things out of boxes. Remember the diorama we built? We still play with it, and have added real rocks, and leaves to the set, as well as brown felt for a hill and green felt for a meadow. Toys you can make with your own 2 hands are especially fun to play with.
Although, for James, I'd argue that the fun is more in the creating than the playing.
This time he was creating a robot.
He saw the empty box and said, "Mommy, will you cut out a robot for me?" Could I say no to that? He figured out the design himself and told me exactly how to cut it.
When it was dry, he tried it on and was pleased as punch
