Friday Photo Shootout - Under Construction
Thanks to Gordon for this week's prompt. For more FPS posts, click on the big black camera on my sidebar.
Under construction in these photos:
2. Imaginary architecture
3. Family memories
It consists of a bench in which there are eight holes and eight brightly coloured pegs that fit into the holes - and there is a mallet. In a fit of gender bias, I bought Jasper a hard hat and the workbench - which, by the way, became known immediately as Bang-Bang. What happened was that Jasper played with it, Jasmine set aside her princess dress-up stuff to play with it, their mother and father and uncle played with it...Well, you get the picture. Everybody loved playing with the Bang-Bang.
The adults also had a wonderful time watching the children play Bang-Bang and seeing (particularly little Jasper's) eye-hand co-ordination improving as we watched. Of course, for all the banging, no actual structure got built, but in the imagination of the children, it seemed whole cities grew right there on the playroom floor.
Mostly, though, what was built was one of those memories that make parents and grandparents go all soft around the eyes, the kind that will be revisited again and again over the years.
