Put that in your pvc pipe

Just like the Imagination Movers sing about Good Ideas, I had one this past weekend.  I am the one who always comes up with the great ideas for things to keep the kids busy and having fun.  I always come up with something fresh to keep their brains expanding. 

Ok.  That whole top paragraph, just so you know is Bullshit.  Man I never seem to come up with cool shit.  The tubes on the 4 C's clubhouse, T's idea, the garden T's idea, the next thing we did this weekend that had the kids busy and having fun for hours, T's idea.

So when we were at the Home Depot T had another great idea.  Buy some 1/2 inch pvc pipe and then get some of the connectors to join them together.  A 10 foot piece of 1/2 inch pvc pipe is only about $1.50 and the little bags of the connectors were about the same price for a bag of 10 pieces.  We had this nice man cut the 10 foot poles into 24 inch pieces. The kids were so excited to get home and play with these.

So when we got home the kids ran to the bedroom and started putting together all kinds of things.  They got their marbles and made tunnels for the marbles to go through.  T and I agreed that we should have gotten this for the kids at Christmas.  They love it.  They were fighting over pieces.

And you can build whatever you want.  It can be something or it can be nothing.  You can make it a marble run or something for the little Super Mario figures to play on.  We have talked about getting more curved pieces and cutting them into different sizes.  So much you can do and you wont break the bank either.

So T, another wonderful job of finding a inexpensive way to keep the kids busy.  A great rainy day treat and something that the kids can play with for a long time. 

Damn what would you do without me?
I know it doesn't make sense but I like to say it anyways!!

what a great IDEA "T". It is amazing the things that keep children happy. I have a son that loved to play with empty boxes so much I actually wrapped up some for gifts. Now he probably won't remember, but he did.

Love to all Nanny

My kids will just end up stuffing socks in them. But that is a great idea though. Now it's something that I want to do added to my list of 100 other things I want to do.

We can make much exciting stuff using PVC pipes as they can be turned into different kinds of structures. Using this guide, I will try to create something for my garden area as it looks very empty. But first, I have to look for the top political science essay writers online so that I can get rid of the pending essays and make something productive using PVC pipes.
