Two wedges and a double lever.

Lever, aka hammer

One of my favourite science geeks, Dr Karl, told me that tools are how we manipulate the universe.

My little girl makes good use of plenty of tools around our house too! Pity she didn’t know how to pack them away afterwards! LOL! Love the “baby” in the stroller. Just gorgeous! 🙂

We usually have double or triple decker babies as they are put on the covers and in baskets too!

Gorgeous pics – loving the stroller. Have just bought a $6 one from KMart that Miss A is completely attached to, amazing to see how she has turned into a Mini Mum overnight with it.

I never thought of it like that.
Very clever to teach our children about simple machines.
She is adorable too.
(Thanks for linking up. Just catching up on WW today because we had to travel and other mundane stuff.)

What a cute little girl! I believe, at this age, we shouldn’t restrict them in exploring the things they find inside our house, provided that someone is watching them all the time.
