Since we had gone to the Dupage Children's Museum , where we have a membership (and love it!) on Monday, we were at home on Tuesday. So, Tuesday (rainy day 3 in a row) we did a special Mother's day project in the morning. This project was tons of fun and will get a post all of its own soon. However, that left us with the afternoon with a Joel who did not nap (which is fairly common at this point) and needed to climb and be super active. So here's what became of our "all the way downstairs" (we have a split level, so it's the lowest of the 3).
An Obstacle Course!!
Joel had to drive the Cozy Coupe Car to the slide, slide down, then crawl through the fort (blanket draped over the couch and coffee table), jump up and shoot hoops with 2 different size basket balls, crawl through the tunnel, then toss about 8 bean bags into a box, then run over to "Chair Chop" (a stuffed lamb chair) to sit down, put on his Buzz Lightyear hat, and play his trumpet!!
Then, my creative child decided he needed to do it all again, but in reverse! This worked really well, except the Buzz hat came off on the way back through the tunnel. :-)
