I went out into the garage to find my handheld garden tools. They are always put in the same spot up high on a shelf to keep my dog from stealing them because he loves chewing on the wooden handles.
He also loves chewing our kitchen floor.
And toilet paper off the roll.
Yes, his poop is a magical array of recycled treasures.
When I got to the shelf, the garden tools were not there. I looked everywhere when I remembered that my son had used them the day before.
I figured that he left them in the garden so I searched and searched but I couldn’t find them. I finally gave up and asked him where he put them.
“Somewhere,” he said.
I followed him to his room to rummage through his stash. He is a hoarder of all the random things in our home and likes to hide them.
I found plant stakes, rocks, wheels that were broken off of a dinky car, some plastic thing that he said floated, a dried up dandelion, a raisin “for later”….and so on.
He finally fessed up and told me that they were back out in the garage stuffed way at the bottom of his outdoor toy box.
He loves hiding things which is why I thought that this Playdin Zip-Itz toy would be perfect for him to put his stash in.
The rest of it is up to your child’s imagination.
Playdin’s Zip-ItzTM are adorned with rainbow teeth zippers that open to reveal secret pockets, Zip-Itz are perfect for hiding all kinds of treasures.
