There are times when walls just can not contain Red. Those times are mostly when it's sunny, warm and the outside is beckoning. Also when it's monsoon-ing. And midnight. So pretty much all the time.
When he's begging me to go find his "shoooos" and go "ow-side", we grab a few extra toys and head out back. Recently, trains have taken their place amongst the planes and automobiles in Red's toy roundup (including these IKEA trains *affiliate link from Aunt Pat).
Bringing trains where no trains have gone before is a feat... but not if you have a little imagination and some sidewalk chalk! Draw yourself a track, a road, or even a village. Detail road signs, obstacle, pass go and collect your $200. Sky's the limit. What have you done to spark some creativity lately?
