Give Them A Box

Forget   the  stores,   the  mail  and the mall.
A   two-year-old  with  a  box is two foot tall.
Forget the  bows,  the ribbons  and  the lace.
A three-year-old with a box is in outer space.
Save your  money,  and save lots of time too.
A  four-year-old  with a box  has his own zoo.
Take  all that  other  junk back  to  the  store.
The  box is being  decorated into a front door.

Kids and animals are so much alike; we spend billions every year on toys for both when a box will suffice. Well penned.

Did you notice this was supposed to be the shape of a box?

This is wonderful Caren and so true of course. A box is anything a child wants it to be and in this day and age it is so important they can let their imaginations run wild, as they should. Great write and hoping you are keeping warm! Kindest thoughts Ann xx

I am not keeping warm Ann. This is our 7th day off school. Wintery mix. I am furious with the ice and sleet king; he was busy all night here.
