      That’s awesome! I was going to add some fun outdoor stuff, like make mud pies, go puddle hopping or dance in the rain, but I wanted to stick with indoor ideas. Thanks for the pin!

      Hahaha! That sounds like a lot of creative fun! When I was little we used to shove all the old chairs together facing each other to make a “boat” then we played for hours that we were either adventurers or lost at sea. It was a blast! Imagination rocks!
