Fool-proof kid exhaustion technique

April 25, 2012

Yesterday we discovered another way to tucker the boys out.  You, too, can get your kids begging for bed by 5pm in 3 simple steps:

1.  Dump 2.5 cubic yards of dirt in the driveway.

2.  Hand out tiny shovels and an old ice cream bucket.

3.  Ask the kids to move all the dirt to two new raised garden beds.  (helmet optional)

Early bedtime guaranteed.

This method also works for adults, but I recommend a wheelbarrow and bigger shovel.

    I heart your beds. Super jealous. LOOK AT ALL THAT STUFF COMING UP ALREADY!

    I’m glad your kids went for it. Mine smelled a rat pretty early in this process and wandered off to find bugs. 🙂
