Make no mistake – the JamFam kids have toys. Thanks (and we are thankful) to the many gifts from Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles, our kids have never lacked Legos, dolls, Bionicles, cars, planes, tinker toys (just to name a few) to play with.
So it is with a certain amount of bemusement that we often find our kids playing with (and making big projects out of) household items that have original usages that are not kid oriented. And I know that my kids are not in any way unique in this respect. It makes one wonder if toys are a necessity.
Anyway, in case you are interested, here are –
16 Non Toy Items that our kids have used as toys:
Paper Plates and Cups
Big cardboard boxes
Leftover Material from Sewing projects
Cardboard flat pieces
My Recycled office paper (for reasons other than drawing)
What notable household items do your kids play with?
