Life-sized tinker toys

We've officially kicked off KidsFest, the two week mid-winter school break where various Christchurch organizations earn a few extra bucks putting on kids' activities.  It prevents parents from going stir-crazy and there are quite a few interesting things going on.  I may be getting old, but I'm still happy to have a play with the life-sized tinker toys.

We’ve officially kicked off KidsFest, the two week mid-winter school break where various Christchurch organizations earn a few extra bucks putting on kids’ activities. It prevents parents and kids alike from going stir-crazy and there are quite a few interesting things going on. I may be getting old, but I’m still happy to have a play with the life-sized tinker toys and watch The Emperor’s New Clothes in theater. 

Naomi even got a piece of the action for this one.  She can now add "chewing blue balls whilst maintaining optimal cuteness" to her life resume.

During the break I've volunteered to mend the dress-ups from Playcenter, so we've got a few home right now.  Milo's first pick?  The pink fairy dress with purple butterfly wings.

  1. Looks like you are really getting into the spirit of Kidsfest 🙂 We are in Dunedin at the Scifest. It’s exhausting but we want to make the most of the opportunities. Joshua is only a kid for such a short time… Love to you

  2. Looks wonderful! I too, can picture Jeremiah’s face! This is the picture you show to girlfriend’s in 20 years. I have a few of Matt and Josh in their Aunt Genevieves’s dance costumes.Always good for a threat…and a laugh. Naomi is gorgeous…love your comments.
