Domino Run

I've had a great idea for an explore project, but knew I was not the right person to head said project. I had been thinking that Matt would love to be the team leader (or that I would guilt him into it at least) but he has been a bit busy lately. So, I had a doctor's appointment during naptime today which left Jack & Grandma at home for a couple hours...I seized the opportunity!

Before I left I showed them this OK Go video I had been saving...


Then I handed them a box of dominos & the flip camera and headed out the door. And they proceeded to dream big!!! Like really big...they were serious! They had sketches and props (cars, balls, cardboard shoe boxes, etc) and they worked hard! In the end, they had some trouble making it come together the way they wanted.

This is the video they made for me...


They were not happy...I thought they did great!!!

Tomorrow, Jack and Grandma are calling each other to set up a playdate. They want a second shot at building the ultimate domino run. They are determined (and maybe a little stressed out about it). Perhaps I inspired them too much with the video?

I'm worried that they are planning something like this for their date!


Maybe I should send along Mousetrap in case they need to get the Rube Goldberg urge out of their systems?
