Linda,
    I'm working on making that dream come true....it's called
prayer and determination.
  Kids always find the least manipulated surroundings the most desirable to
play with. ( Like your example of the pile of dirt -next to a new playground.
WHY???
Well-art teachers know why....they can leave their OWN creative mark on it.
It becomes "theirs". Like the boxes that the appliances come in, the packing
material from shipping boxes, pots and pans in the kitchen for play, a barn
filled with bales of hay or a big blank piece of paper with a new box of
crayons. Great items for creativity.
Hmmmmmmm.....I wanna BIG box of NEW crayons and a rainy afternoon on the
couch.
Yea........
Patti
