Over the last week the boys attended a camp to learn to invent toys.
This is a natural habit at our house, because that's mostly what they do. Really, the only toys we spend money on are ones of V.H.I.R. ... that is they have a Very High Imagination Requirement...Lego, blocks, any kind of art or craft supplies. (really, how could I refuse a child asking to explore a new medium?? Acrylics? Sure! Art markers? Great! Supplies for building "Backyard Ballistics"? Now you're talking! And actually, we DO all still have all our limbs and digits.)
So the boys are ready to go pro with all the fantastical ideas bursting from their craniums.
"Sub-Aqua" is a model of a water vehicle with a working motor, light, and paddle-wheel propulsion, for use in "bathtub, pond, pool, lake or sea".
"Divide and Conquer" is a Real Time Strategy game of unlimited (Ka-Ching!!) upgrades.
I fully expect we could soon be rolling in the royalty cheques!!
