Have your children ever built, rebuilt, or created anything strange out of household items?


My son's mini-basketball rim and backboard broke this evening, so he hung up his dirty clothes bag ... and continued playing without a hitch. What kinds of "creations" have your children made that astonished you? (His new "invention" is actually much quieter.)

    I have a vintage picture of my dad and his brothers and sisters sitting in brightly painted wooden orange crates they had made into a train. Maybe it's a family trait?

    Lego and Erector sets, Lincoln Logs--these were the "toys" of my childhood. One son was interested in them--the other not as much since he is truly from the electronic 21st century.
