Pipe dream

I have realized lately that I am watching entirely too many movies with Lindsey during the day. It is so easy to put on a movie and do my own stuff, so I have made an effort in the last week to turn off the t.v. and do other things. I was looking for ideas of activities to do with the girls, when I came across this one: PVC pipe and joints. We went to Home Depot tonight and bought all the supplies. Jason cut the pipe for us, and we had a blast putting the pipes together. Even Megan was getting in on the action. She was able to put the pipes and joints together easily. This is a great "toy" because it is sturdy, easy to put together, and during the summer we can take it outside and put water through the pipes. And, Jason really likes it too.

Lindsey built this whole structure all by herself. She used every single piece that we have. I guess we need to buy more supplies!

You can roll marbles or something like beans or rice through it while it's inside.

What a creative idea! I'm always running out of activities for my kids to do instead of t.v. or the darn computer. You're so smart!
