Unplug your kids....Plastic
This weeks theme over at Unplug your Kids was plastic. Thinking about what the boys could do, use something from the recycled bin. Now what to make....Boats. It was a rainy, yucky morning out on saturday so I decided that would be a good time to do it.

Here they are getting thing together to make the boats. Gabe with Scissors could be dangerous, but I think Sam can handle him. LOL
Gabe's Finished boat. Complete with a driver and passenger.
Sam's Completed boat. He was very cute and put clay aroud the edge and said his boat had port holes. To funny.
Of course they had to test them out so we brought out the plastic bin. They made an ocean and got out their plastic sea animals. Then added colorful stones in the bottom. They played with this for a good hour. It was lots of fun.

Make sure to check out all of the other wonderful projects over here. Also don't forget to join back next week for the new theme.

I like the boats and love the Little People crew on board! How cool that they played with their boats for so long too! :)

Wonderful! It's a joy to see the pictures of your boys. My boy is only 6 months, but he is already SUCH a BOY. I just loved the pic of your younger one pulling the scissors. :)
