An Unexpected Source of Entertainment

If you - like us - come across an old boom box in your closet that doesn't work anymore, you could toss it.

OR, you could give your kids a couple of screwdrivers and let them be engineers for the afternoon.

Seriously, don't underestimate the fun in this.

It also works for old keyboards, cell phones, cordless phones...

A few days later Caleb was heard saying about a toy, "This doesn't work anymore. I'm going to engineer it."

PS - It's a nice little bonus if you happen to have a real engineer at your house so your kids actually learn something.

Hopefully the kids have a safer experience with engineering radios that Phil and I did when we were kids! I'll never forget those words "Hey Pete, go plug this in." The smell of burnt electronics and smoke are still fresh in my nostrils!
