Going to Work

Confession: I’m really sick of this cold winter weather. Not because I hate winter, but because I have one very active little boy who loves being outside, but despises wearing his coat. Which means we’ve been spending a lot of time indoors lately. And I’m starting to run out of fun indoor games.

Yesterday, Monster invented a new game, called “going to work.” I *think* it developed because we dropped P off at work yesterday morning. Monster wanted to stay and explore, but we couldn’t, so when we came home, Monster set to work filling his truck with tools to take to “work.” This game occupied several hours yesterday and today. Monster would fill his truck up, drive it to “work” (one side of the basement) dump them all out, put them all back in his truck, then drive his truck back “home” (the other side of the basement), dump them out, and start the process all over again.

I’m thankful we’ve got a new game to play, even if Monster’s interest in it only lasts a couple of days. Hopefully I’ll be able to think of a new, fun indoor game before he tires of this one though!

What’s your child(ren) favorite indoor game?
