For the fourth (or fifth) time this year, you could hear the collective groan of mothers across the area as the announcement went out that we would have ANOTHER snow day. Whether a mom works from home, has young children not of school age or a regular schedule of activities and errands, one thing is for certain… Snow Days really mess up the plans. Thankfully, my girls are at an age where they can entertain themselves. Well, more or less. Often, trying to get them to agree on something is the biggest challenge. Thank goodness we had a K’NEX Roller Coaster that was calling for the girls to assemble and play with! K’NEX Typhoon Frenzy Roller Coaster to be exact.
This isn’t their first K’NEX rodeo though. They’ve put together Yellow Submarine and Super Mario Brothers sets and work together really well on them. I’m okay with that because I need as much help as possible with time-management and snow days don’t help.The nice part is that they even left them set up to play with for a few days before realizing they needed their table back for other stuff.
They worked on it for two solid hours! That’s pretty awesome considering their usual capacity to interact (without arguing) when cooped up in the house is only about… let’s just say… NOT two hours.They had a little difficulty with a few pieces that they connected incorrectly that required dad and a pair of pliers to disconnect but other than that, they had fun.
When it was completely assembled, they decided to take it for a ride!
