We had a lovely visit with our friend, Katie and her sons yesterday. When we were about to leave Katie explained that since they were lucky enough to have so many toys, they ouften invite friends who come over for a play to choose one toy to take home and borrow for a little while. I absolutely love this idea. It gives a child a real sense of what sharing is about- seeing the joy and happiness in giving. It also teaches children to be less possesive and attached to their material possessions. This is definitely a family tradition we will work into our lives. So, thank you Katie for the inspiration.
North with the toy he chose to borrow- a silver mini with a bonus driving dinosaur.
