Forget the Christmas list

The other day I turned around from working at the kitchen sink and found the little ones rolling tape back and forth to each other with these:
Yes, that's a strainer spoon and a potato masher. Their own little hockey sticks.
Afterwards they began some mysterious project that included taping the potato masher to the floor. I never quite figured that one out, and apparently they didn't either because they ended up carting the utensils off to the rec room where I found the masher in one of my copper-bottomed pots.

Forget the Christmas list, Grandma: just get them some kitchen utensils and some all-purpose tape, something that always seems to be in short supply around here. They'd probably think they've hit the jackpot.

Too funny!! That's like when you give a kid a present and they're more interested in the box. :)

I know...we spend all that money on cool educational toys and they're more interested in everyday stuff. It's so good, though...great imaginations!!

How true... I have discovered that every kitchen gadget resembles a weapon of some sort too. And after that movie "Flushed Away", my kid keeps stealing the mixer (they used a mixer as a jet ski/boat thing in the movie).
