Crafting with recyclables makes him happy :D

I did not get to go ‘jalan-jalan’ after work today. Why? Because Ethan insisted to go straight home to place all his cars into his new craft work. What IS his new craft work? We did something out of card board boxes and kitchen paper rolls…

Just look at how happy he is! I’m blessed at how simple it is to please him… and yeah, I’m at home now helping him park all his cars into the castle :D

I guess we will be playing with this for a couple of hours until it is time to go to the playground later :)

Click here for the full instruction on how to make a simple castle using corrugated boards and kitchen paper rolls.
