this morning my youngest 2 girls were moaning they had nothing to do, in the hallway there is a pine chest full of board games.
I suggested they took all the boxes out, and all the bits at the bottom of the chest and sort them
out - which they have been doing. I told them I should never hear them saying they are bored again with all those to play with.
a bit later, after they had cleared away and had a game out the 8 year old said to the 4 years old 'if you are ever bored again, into the box you go' (referring to pine chest)
I looked up and saw the 4 year old with her face in the lid of the games box and singing 'into the box I go, into the box I go'
