Kids Coop - Ice cream vans

The Weekly Kids Co-Op

Its time for Kids Coop, please link up your child orientated posts and check out what others are doing, If you like something please do leave a comment, everyone loves comments. This week I'm linking the following:
(Goblin is 43 months)
 Last week we got a piece of furniture delivered. We left the box out for Goblin to find in the morning. He was very excited by the possibilities of what could be made from the box. But he had to go to nursery and leave the box behind.
Four hours later Goblin returned to find his Daddy had made him an ice cream truck. There was a little chair inside so he could sit and drive it (using the movable steering wheel). 
Hublet had even printed out the Caution children at play sign for the back, as well as a Ford logo for the front and an Ice cream price list for the side. The back van door had a working latch constructed from a set of wooden nuts and bolts that Goblin has.  
 I whipped up a few batches of playdough - chocolate, vanilla, strawberry - and we put in the two we already had (blue and red which Goblin said was melon flavour, and blue which Goblin decided was raspberry). 
 And an entire days play was mapped out for the whole family.
