Recently the Bean has been quietly sneaking away to the kitchen to pull all the pots and pans out of the cupboard every chance she gets. Every time I come in and see her on the floor surrounded with the pots and pans it makes me smile. Playing with pots and pans seems like such a classic childhood activity and in watching her play I can see the appeal. The pans are large, they make loud noises and there are lots of them. However I think the most appealing thing to her is the different sizes. She loves stacking the pots into one another and trying to find the right lid to fit each pot. Do your kids play with pots and pans? Do they have another house hold item they love to pay with?
