Jenga Blocks for a Dollar.
I purchased two sets of Jenga blocks for $1. I thought Luke would enjoy the blocks. Well, he does like those little wooden blocks. However, he also likes to throw them. (Does this phase ever end)?! I packed a few extra blocks for our trip to the lake one weekend. I try to pack some activities for Clare to do in the morning before Luke wakes up, or in case it rains a day or two. I gave the blocks to Clare with some paint. She took it upon herself to paint them different colors. She sorted a few and then stacked a few. I suggested we put letters on the blocks to practice spelling her name. She politely said, "Good idea, Mom." She did a good job. Then she asked if she could paint the people on the newspaper. It kept her busy for 45 minutes. I had several cups of coffee while having adult conversations.
