smarTrike Pirate Ship | Living Arrows

Welcome back to Living Arrows, a post which celebrates childhood. I intend on creating as many of these weekly photos as possibly because they are great to reflect on all together.

The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran ~
"You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth"

I didn't manage to post yesterday, but what I did manage to do is assemble a smarTrike for Alexander. I took him to the park to meet some friends and he didn't want to play on anything whatsoever but he took an instant liking to his friend's smarTrike. It was a bit difficult parting him from it to get home!

When we got back I uncovered the unopened, unused smarTrike which was purchased way back in 2012. It was intended for Lily of course, but for the most part we haven't lived anywhere with the space to store it inside so it has moved with us to a different house and remained unused. Until Monday that is. I'm not sure what generation the smarTrike is, but regardless, Alexander was pretty chuffed with it (even though the school run was interesting with counter-steering!).

However, he also found that the box was just as fun as a pirate ship!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. There's nothing better than a box for kids is there?! Great imaginative play #livingarrows

  2. I love how much children love cardboard boxes, often more than the contents! x

  3. Haha, boxes never fail to win every time. What is it about children and boxes, I'd love to know! #livingarrows

  4. Cardboard boxes are always the highlight for my two as well haha (unless there's bubblewrap, that wins hands down!) xx


Thanks for reading, please leave a comment. I would love to hear from you
