I put an empty salt box in Olivia's art supplies. I thought it would be fun to use for crafting. She found it this morning. Dumped the salt onto a napkin. Tasted it. Invited Bentley to have a taste. Then she ran off with the salt carefully cradled in the napkin. I said, "What about this?" Pointing to the salt box on the floor. She said, "OH!". A few minutes later she came back with a new pet dog named Salty.
Not exactly what I had in mind. But hey, whatever works!
Today I'm thankful for creative kids that make me laugh!
