It's always funny when after you and your loved ones spend hundreds of dollars on fancy toys for the children that they still just love spending hours playing with, well, garbage. James has been enjoying this little treat for the past few days. Some of you may know that the little Burt's Bees tinted lip balm container makes the most delightful popping sound when pulled apart quickly. When my friend Diana purchased some of the tinted lip balm in Baltimore last November, I snatched the case from her quickly. After forgetting about it for months, I found it in my purse a few days ago and the kids were just so excited...taking turns with their new "toy". It's wonderful how something so simple can both be entertaining and educational. So good for motor skills and a fun science lesson for Nathan.
