That’s what we found one evening a few weeks back when warmer weather was finally breaking in our part of the world and our son wanted to play hockey outside.
ProblemThe problem was that we have no hockey equipment.
SolutionAnd the solution? Looking at what we did have instead of what we didn’t and making it work anyway!
- a need for Luke to enjoy some heavy work as part of his sensory diet.
- a craving for us all to partake in some active, outdoor time (homeschool P.E.)
- a family with imagination
Bike helmets, Freecycle-scored roller skates, pool noodles, a wiffle ball and the game was on!
