A little over 10 days ago, I taped out a little city on my kitchen floor. You can read about that here. I had meant for the tape to stay down for just a couple day, but a couple turned into 10. Honestly, I was not looking forward to crawling around on my hands and knees and discovering just how much my floor needs a good scrubbing.
Evidently, the tape was getting to my husband! After dinner, he instigated a “Hey, Elliot, how big of a piece of tape do you think you can pull up?” challenge. It was ON! Both Elliot and Mary were on floor, trying to carefully pull up the tape. They were doing a mighty fine job, too! Mary managed to snag a 2-ft piece! Of course, I didn’t have my camera out at that point, but their dedication to getting the tape up inspired me to go grab it!
From an educational perspective, this activity worked on hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and household responsibility.
But more importantly, I had help cleaning up!
