So we had the opportunity to watch a College hockey game at our alma mater a few weeks ago with family. This was a first for S, but A’s second game. The kids enjoyed it, especially the live marching band. And after we got home it was all S could talk about. So I grabbed some cardboard box, tape, & scissors & got to work making a couple hockey sticks and a puck. I ended up putting some plastic knives between 2 pieces of cardboard before taping them together for added stability. And it worked like a charm.
This has been a huge hit! The kids have spent so much time playing together & alone. Then we put up the gate for a net. We have all gotten into the game! (Hopefully this will hold up until Friday when we have our Olympic party. Stay tuned for that post!) S was so excited about this he even slept with the puck!
