Works For Me Wednesday - Creative Play - Win It Wednesday Giveaway



As the Boy Mamas know, boys are very active. Can you hear me 'active!' And we are always encouraging the outdoors and activities. We also encourage creativity.

We are not one of those super-scheduled, join-almost-every-activity, (especially the ones you wish you'd tried the as a child. ;) over-busy families. Yet we have a good mix of activities, sports and fun for the Tigers.

Recently, the TIgers took it all to a whole new level with creating their own punching bag system right in our own backyard! They found this hilarious and entertaining. I found it entertaining too. Look at pictures. They're enjoying and active. We're loving having them get such a chuckle out of their invention.

Here's their Invention - The Punching Bag:

1) Fill cloth bag with soft clothing; ;)
2) Hang at appropriate length for the children to "punch" said bag! and (safe height, we chose a little higher so that they wouldn't get caught in it and supervised/laughed the entire time. ;)
3) Enjoy!

Cherish your children. Let them enjoy their childhood, wonder and creativity!

***P.S. Enter the WIN IT WEDNESDAY GIVEAWAY HERE! ;) Big stuff.

Warmly,
