You were little and mom and dad got an appliance or large item and you couldn't wait to build something with the cardboard?

This is my granddaughters restaurant called Kitty Corn/Sprinkles.

My husband god bless him built it for them and we decorated it. So much fun!

LOL...spend way to much $$$ on toys for the grandchild, and her favorite thing is a box as well. She at least takes some of her toys into her "Fort". I do have to say the artwork on yours is stupendous lol

Brings back memories of those big 25'' console color tv box's when they first came out. They made a great place to play in.

I'm starting to have some of these times with my nephew. He's a few weeks shy of his second birthday and he's starting to be fun. Starting to explore things, and he's loving going on the boat. I've got a few words into his vocabulary so far. "Ahh nuts" is my favorite. When he drops something... "Ahh nuts"....when he's struggling with something "Ahh nuts"...

You have to be careful, their antennas are always up. It's amazing how there can hear a word once, then a couple of days later throw it back at you in the right context.

I've been a grandmother since 2003. Oh ya they are little tape recorders.

I take care of them while my daughter works during the summer. They ask endless questions. And I've always answered them honestly (albeit age appropriate answers).

We spend most of our time outside. Yesterday we loaded up on the Polaris Wheeler and did a sojourn into the woods.

Learning about all the plants (I'm a forager).

They both love hunting for turtles and frogs. I've been trying to find a slider for a pet for them.

Pretty soon the 8 yr old will be ready to drive her machine into the woods with me.

We slid down the stairs on cardboard until someone got hurt. Then we ran in fear of really getting hurt (by the parents).
