Flip the couches
20 September 10
It’s been grey and rainy all day. Perfect inside weather. And to keep the littlies amused inside, what’s better than a cubby house? Flip the couches to make a more substantial cubby, and you’ll be offering your children hours of self-amusement.
Once everything was set up satisfactorily, the girls designated parts of their cubby as rooms and began in engage in a complicated game of house. They furnished their cubby with pillows and kitchen accessories, toys and dolls. (At one point I intervened because Aisha had expelled her sisters while she tidied up.)
Over the past week, we’ve been loving our new trampoline. So when today was a wash-out with the rain, I was apprehensive about how the girls would handle a full day indoors.
With the flipped couches, it hasn’t been a problem! (Except now I’ll have to engage Mrs Clinton to help with the negotiations in order to reclaim the couches for normal seating purposes!)
