Especially my son was thrilled to design and make on his own (but with the help of his grandfather…) wooden boats, rock ancker and all. And then to play with them in the water. Free and simple but loads of joy!
One day I came home to a window shelf full of these cool monster that dad had made with the kids. Especially our 5yo son loved making these. Usually he likes crafts but our daughter is the one loving it, maybe the key is to have fathers come up with the ideas to get sons […]
