Bet Our Grandkids Wood Like These Projects

by Kaye Swain

Wood blocks are fun for grandkidsWood is grand for grandkids, WOODn't you know! (Sorry, I DO love word plays! :) ) My grandkids have two sets of wooden blocks, along with their zillion LEGOs. Some really big thick ones ande some really thin tiny ones. Both are very fun to build with. 

Last week, when I babysat for several days, they enjoyed the special privilege of keeping all the blocks out and scattered in the living room. Then they got to work on the blocks in between other projects. It was quite fun watching them build up one thing, then tear it down and start all over again.

My grandkids had fun making battle arenas for Bakugan and other toys

I wanted to share some of their projects for all of you with grandboys who also love wooden blocks AND Bakugan battle arenas AND mini-skateboard arenas (not to mention the fun new Squinkies for the grand-boys). They did a grand job building them, didn't they?

This was a skate board ramp for my grandchildren and their mini skateboards

As much as I love high-tech for myself AND my grandkids, I also LOVE low-tech, simple projects coupled with educational TV shows and limited electronic game times. It really seems to make a positive difference in how they behave and that's always a help to a busy grandparent babysitting grandchildren, don't you think? And won't my senior mom love to see these pictures on her iPad? :)
