I promise you, I do not teach Destructo to think on destructive things. He does it of his own free will.
I had no idea that this bottle of toothpicks would be so much fun. It's days like this that I wonder: why do I even plan projects for him? He has such a vivid imagination.
Note: While I was distracted in the kitchen to take a picture of the toothpicks...somehow he found last week's tempera painting to use as a ship. Once wet, he smeared the paint on the towel. "Look at the colors, Mom!" I tried to fake my excitement with his discovery. RRrrrgh. Thankfully it washed clean.
