Construction! (and a fun game link!)

We were introduced to a creative way to let the kids practice their construction skills this weekend - styrofoam! While at a friends' house, the boys were given screwdrivers, hammers, nails and screws and big pieces of styrofoam to create whatever they wanted. Both went to town and had a great time making creations. The fun continued when we brought home some styrofoam! Here are some photos I snapped of Dinoguy working hard today on a new creation.

I was also sent a link to a fun Christmas tree puzzle where you have to connect the paths to light up all the lights on the tree. We have had a lot of fun playing it today. Trainboy loves it, Fixitman loves it... it is just a entertaining puzzle! So check it out! :) Link Hope you had a lovely weekend too!

What a cool idea. Kaylee had about 4 smaller blocks of styrofoam that she crushed and made snow with!!!

My son loves to make things. I like this idea. BTW - he has the same shirt!

We do this but somehow it always ends up getting shredded afterward/during. What an incredible mess! Styrofoam is very resistant to vacuuming!
