Its amazing what joy a simple cardboard box would give a child.
Last weekend we were cleaning out the store room and out came an old TV box. H1 immediately claimed ownership and carried it away. For over half an hour we were not bothered by her as she was too busy getting in and out of the box or curling in it just like a little kitten.
After a while when I checked on her, she had emptied her whole army of soft toys from the toy cupboard (all twenty one of them!!) into the box saying that its their new home. H1 being "Mom" was sitting in the midst of them all looking like cute cuddly bear herself!!
