4 year old Oscar has been approaching Ben Blair and me repeatedly this morning with a roll of duct tape. Asking us to get him a piece. Every time we ask what it’s for he says he doesn’t know.
A few minutes ago he proudly brought me this and said, “It’s a Crayon Packer 3000.” Asked me to take a picture and then stuffed it into his pocket.

This makes me 1000 times happier then if he’d said something along the lines of Mom, you’re the best.

I absolutely adore when kids do things like this! Creative parents breed creative kids! :)

My daughter, who was 9 at the time, wanted to learn how to use the power tools in the garage, but she wouldn't tell us why. She was moving to the top bunk and used the power tools to build a "thing so she could use a rope to pull stuff up in a bucket to her bunk." Turns out, she built a PULLEY. Out of wood. Having never seen one before. I have never been more proud to be her mother.

Awesome! I love when kids do stuff like this! And I personally hate when crayons are all over the place – way better to have them all together!

That is hilarious! Last summer my son (3 at the time) made something out of cardboard and told me it was the "fly wapper 3000". I thought it was so funny!
