Boy Toys

I recently got to craft with a young boy.
Together, we made this car out of construction paper:

Construction Paper Car
It took us about 30-45 minutes to make
and as soon as it was done the boy looked at me and said,
"Can I smash it now?"

So, that was the story about the car.

Then he looked at me and said,
"Can we make a truck?"

So, we did.

But, having now realized that boys need something to DO with
their vehicles once they were made,

Construction Paper Truck Loaded with Cargo
we gave the truck a lift-able rear cover so he could
fill the back with various cargo, haul the stuff around for a while,
then empty it and refill it with different stuff.

So the truck did not get smashed.
Well, at least not on that day anyway.
