Very in love right now with this little corner in my son's bedroom. This is the outcome of the repetitive request - "can you please sort out that room of yours".

Had to show you.

That rubber band ball started out as o.n.e. rubber band, and now its the size of a small basketball! Determined little man. They are actually cool fun and a brilliant distraction. The last time I had a house full of people over, most of whom were bringing kids, I went up to the newsagents and laid down $20 for as many bags of rubber bands I could get, in all shapes and sizes.

I swear, it was the best night - not one squabble, needy child, or broken vase. They sat outside all night making these things and comparing techniques and aesthetics. Really cool.

That is such a great idea Jules, I will be trying that one out on my bunch. Love the colour co-ordinated book stacking...and the gnome is cute too! Re: the 'missing mojo' maybe we both need a holiday to get over the christmas break, what do you think?

They are really fun, and smaller ones bounce like mad! This one is getting a bit on the heavy side now, won't let him bounce it inside - worried it will crack a tile! :{

I had kind of hoped that he would put books away in the bookcase rather than stack them on top of a set of drawers - but you know, i didn't put specifics on it, i just asked for 'sorted', and that's what i got!

Lisa, any time my compadre - i so need another holiday, and i think we could find a fair bit of fabulous trouble to get into :)

I used to baby sit the same kids every week for years and the little boy was a total handful. Then one time I showed him how to do Jacob's ladder with a piece of string and he sat for hours trying to replicate it. Who knew?
