Geo Fun

This week has found me home with Stooge suffering from the chicken pox. Luckily he had the vaccine when he was 18 months so only got a very mild dose,  but it still means quarantine until the spots have scabbed over.

So what a perfect time to pull out one of my 'to do' games I've had in the back of my mind for ages.
A Geo Board! It will give him a chance to be still without being bored. You have no idea how important this is for our Stooge!

First I went to the hardware and got some peg board (they only had a large sheet, so I had it cut in 3 with the the idea of using for presents later in the year perhaps)
Then I bought a packet of 2.5 cm screws with bolts and threaded them through in a grid pattern.

So for an inexpensive $8 I now have a game that everyone enjoys, is open ended (you know I love those!) and uses up all those odd rubber bands that I've collected over time.

Best $8 ever spent. It's kept them ALL busy for hours and somehow they are even able to all play and share it at the same time - who knew it was possible?
Did you have a geo board when you were young? Do you have any other 'still' games you could suggest for us?
