We have my niece with us for five days. Currently, we have a 7, almost 6, 3.5, 2.5, and 8 month old tearing around the house. They came up with the idea of forming a super hero club. They’ve commandeered a giant box for the club house and several of my dish towels have become capes. When their “Hero Phone” lights up (a little gold trophy), they turn into Purple Rain, Green Sparkle, Pink Sparkle, Strawberry Blossom, and–this is where it gets too cute–Samuel becomes Super Pooper and Penny (our dog) becomes Nickel. It’s just too fun to watch them playing and using nothing but a box, some towels and brilliant imaginations.
