Yesterday we talked about things that kids love to play with that aren't toys. We asked you to share yours, and we loved the answers so much we have to share:

  •  hammers
  • pots and pans with a wooden spoon for a drum stick
  • hills of dirt
  • feed barrels cut in half (for mini pools or molds for snow and mud)
  • picnic tables and benches
  • lining up chairs to make a train
  • using creamer cups as trash bins for Barbie
  • lawn sprinklers
  • hitting rocks with big sticks
  • helicopter seed pods
  • rope swings
  • sandboxes
  • blankets over chairs
