I glanced outside and a massive amount of cut up cardboard box pieces caught my eye.
The debris was scattered all over the deck along with the missing pair of scissors I had been looking for. I walked outside and saw some of the children in the field. One was attaching a cardboard cut-out of a deer to the tree. The other was hammering a stake into the ground with a metal bat. He had duck-taped his cardboard cut-out deer to a stake.
With bows and arrows in hand, these boys proceed to target practice in their own creative way.
Ingredients: A few creative boys, cardboard, tape, scrap wood or sticks, bows and arrows = hours of uninterrupted play.
