Around the traps

Just a quick funny while I think of it...

Master 4 (nearly 5) is obsessed with traps. 
Trapping people - bad guys mostly.
I blame the watching of Scooby Doo reruns.

So following are a couple of simple-to-rig-up-in-the-house traps:


This one's the old rabbit under a box type trap. 
Very effective for capturing soldiers who have come to investigate the roll of sticky tape that's been left for bait. 
(You work with what you've got, right?)

 

And here we have poor Spiderman, about to be hoisted unsuspectingly towards the ceiling.

 



Prior to making these traps, I commented on how fun it was to be making booby traps. 

Mr 4 said "but can't we make leg traps mummy?"

Uh, poor kid.......

Hee hee - that's so funny! My boys are like that too, especially the oldest one - Daddy! I blame it on Survivor Man and Bear Grylls! They try all sorts of traps to catch critters outside - no luck yet! lol

I love him - and remember making the box trap as well. For my poor cat actually and he was good enough to play along....

I am definitely going to have to put FJ's dad onto that. I suspect it will involve lots of Lego men!

Ha, and I thought it was only my own kid who's into all that! Can't imagine what he thought when I said 'booby' trap though, that for some reason being the one area of anatomy I don't call by it's correct name...
