It never ceases to amaze me what my kids can do with cardboard. They have made so many things. Dioramas, houses, cars etc. Recently, Little Bit went to a girl scout camp that was centered around Mine Craft. All arts and crafts had something to do with this game. My children have not been allowed to play this game for quite some time, not because the game is bad, but because I caught them looking up how to videos for the game that were not children friendly. They did not even ask to look them up. So, we told them no more game, and for some reason, simply forgot about it. All of us, including the children lost the desire for the game. Until recently with the Girl Scout Camp.
Our answer is still no, but they decided to play the game on their own, making the armor. Oh my goodness, their imaginations are better than the game! Middle and Little Bit made their armors, and have taken great care of them. Every day they come out and lay with it for a while, outside with the dogs. Somehow, the dogs have become part of their game as well.
I cannot help but think that this way may be better than the game. They are playing, using their imaginations, and having a great time. If the game was being played, they would be sitting in the house, and frankly missing out on summer. I also am so happy to see Middle Bit, who is getting older, still wanting to play. This truly makes my heart sing.
Hope you are all enjoying your summer and using your imaginations!
