Several days ago, my children received a generous box of wooden trains, tracks, and accessories from their Great Aunt. They were my cousin’s trains when he was a little boy, and Colin and Owen have thoroughly been enjoying them!
Deep inside of the box were several broken and chipped road signs. Colin asked me if I was going to throw them out. I replied, “No. We can fix these signs right up.” He cheered!
Colin asked me that question because he knows that usually, I throw out broken toys that can’t be repaired. Broken toys that can’t be fixed do not get played with and become clutter. I do not care for clutter. The good news is that many high quality wooden toys are easily repaired with wood glue and/or a coat of paint. The road signs were salvageable! Hooray!
What was your best “save?”
