- battery-powered "Shake N Go" race cars and delux race tracks with flashing lights and loud obnoxious race sounds;
- a remote-controlled monster truck, also with obnoxious sounds;
- a complete set of "Home Depot" plastic power tools (interestingly, he received two of the same set... I guess there was a sale at Toys R Us);
- a miniture-size Harley Davidson motorcycle and motorcyclist that operates on an actual foot pump.
I taught Christopher how to fly paper airplanes last summer, but we were limited to lifeless notebook paper. So this time I purchased construction paper with cool designs and colors. We already spent two afternoons making and flying airplanes. We even made spaceships by taping two airplanes together and fastening ribbons at the bottom to give an illusion of fire shooting from the engine as it soars through the air. My brother-in-law also joined in on the fun and began folding other types of airplanes. As you can see above, my skills are limited to one style.
