I know that for us, it's partly because our house is so small, but does it ever seem as if your children always choose to build their large, all-day-play creations smack in the middle of the main thoroughfare of the house?
Anyway, I spent most of that day walking around and stepping over this giant thing as Syd played, and it wasn't until she'd gone to bed that night (after negotiating its survival for at least another day) that I really stopped and noticed it:
So there's a corral of horses, with a couple of stables inside, and it looks as if the kids have hot glued some stash Scrabble letters to one of the Kapla blocks over the corral's gate to give the corral a name: Crosswood. One of Will's dragons is parked just outside the gate, trying to get in--
--but all of the horses are safe in their enclosures, with LEGO people to guard them.
Here's how we hand-dyed some of those Kapla blocks. I think that I should dye more sometime, and I think that I should keep an eye on the sales to beef up our Kapla collection.
Maybe the horses would like to have TWO corrals to choose from, you know.
