Toddler obstacle coursePosted: October 24, 2012
So we’ve been battling the PLAGUE for two weeks in Nerdcasamathfun.
(And by the plague, I mean a cold combined with lots of Dad overtime. I exaggerate. It’s what I do.)
So our afternoon structured activities have consisted of a lot of sitting outside in the backyard sunshine and reading our favorite books over and over and overandoveroveroverover.
Last week while I was teaching the Little Scientist discovered the open flat of water bottles and created himself an obstacle course. Nerddadmathfun said he was entertained forEVER. We’re talking a half-hour of self-entertainment. An ETERNITY in toddler time.
Case in point:
And, if you have the time to kill, NDMF took a video of the excitement here: toddler obstacle course. (You’ll have to excuse the middle camera part – kiddo’s in the “grab your face when I’m talking to you ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION” phase *grin*)
A brief translation – OLLIE means water. We don’t know why. Just roll with it.
The ladies at #iPPP are still putting up with me – you should go read their Awesome Funnyness.
