Better than video games
I was at a loss for something to post for today, until I read Beth's post about Video Games Day, today 8 July. I've found an example of what can be done without video games or computers, just a little bit of make-believe. I'm only surprised they didn't improvise a drum.
I do wonder if video games and such are expanding horizons in one direction but limiting children's imaginations in other ways.
This card was sent to a small boy in the Netherlands in 1937 from his aunt. Three years later, war broke out and within another year the Netherlands had been invaded. Before long, toys were the least of their worries.
This is a post for Postcard Friendship Friday, which is hosted by Beth Niquette at The Best Hearts are Crunchy.
