Today we saw a huge stack of cardboard boxes at our neighbors so A went and nicely (manners) asked if we could play with them. They said yes & so we worked on carrying them (gross motor) over to our porch.
A started arranging them so I asked what did she want make. She decided on a castle looking at some pictures on the phone. (decision making) So with most of it being her ideas we arranged the boxes and added tape. Then she decided it needed a bridge so we added it along with a rubberband and some sticks so the bridge could stay closed. (Imagination, problem solving).
Later we brought out markers so A & S could decorate it. Later K came over and he enjoyed the castle. They even found alternative ways to play with it and the slide. (working together) .
