“I never did a day’s work in my life. It was all fun.” — Thomas A. Edison
Fun for the five-and-under crowd in Romania is much the same as in the States. Trains, trucks, tea parties, dress-up, craft projects, afternoons at the playground, leaf-hunting and rock-gathering, snacks in front of the television, stickers on Every. Single. Thing … We do it all, no matter what side of the Atlantic we’re on. But there’s more to it. We set up the train tracks our Romanian friend gave us. We improvise our way through art projects, coming up with creative substitutions for googly eyes, construction paper, and pipe cleaners. We eat our Barni cake and Tedi juice while we watch British cartoons like “Brambly Hedge” and “Tiny Planets.” It’s, quite literally, a world away from what we’re used to. But fun is fun, no matter where you are. Or, in our case, fun is distracţie.
How do you and your kids have fun? Have you ever watched a foreign cartoon? And how would you get by without googly eyes??
See more fun at Beth’s on Thursday.
