A Rather Blustery Day

Today it was too wet and windy to do anything outside with the cutest kid in the world, so we found some rainy day activities to do indoors.

making the robotAbout a year ago I found a book called “My Little Blue Robot” in the remainder bin of the local bargain bookstore. It didn’t have much of a story, but it did have a cardboard robot that could be assembled and disassembled fairly easily.

I decided today was as good a day as any to break it out of the packaging and see how it would go over with my three-year old. And it turns out, the robot was a hit.

David spent a good part of the day playing with his robot, assembling it twice — once with me and once with his dad — and talking to it, teaching it how to play tiddly winks, and other imaginative things.

If you’ve got a three or four year old, try to find a copy to fill several hours of the next rainy or wintery day.

    Oh I saw a copy of that book… and i love robots… in a little shop this summer! I was on a roadtrip tho, and had too little money for the trip as it was and so passed on it. Thanks for reminding me about it! I have a 2 year old daughter… maybe a little young for it but not for long!
