The Covered Wagon

If you haven't noticed yet, James has quite an interest in farming, cowboys, horses, etc.. A few weeks ago, we found an awesome book at the library called Great Pioneer Projects You Can Build Yourself. The project that James found right away was a covered wagon. We used the directions from the book, fancied it up some, and came up with a pretty cool toy. James also put in a request for a yoke for his horses, Mike and Choya. (Thank God for pipe cleaners and Popsicle sticks!) The wagon has been played with a lot over the last few weeks. Lately James has also been playing a lot with Lincoln logs. He loves to build little towns, complete with stables and 'forests' and firewood piles.
