So, ds (6 1/2) has created a nature museum out of our back yard.<br><br>
It contains the following (carefully labeled)<br>
Sticks<br>
Pine cones<br>
Two trees<br>
Bushes<br>
One crocus<br>
Ivy<br><br>
He has a sign on the door telling people to ring the door bell and he will show them the museum.<br><br>
AND... he has posted signs <i>all over</i> the neighborhood with arrows pointing people to the 'nater museum'.<br><br>
I feel like a horrible mother because I really hope no one comes, and I know that ds will be disappointed. He wants "a lot of people" to come.

invite some of his friends to come. He'll be happy and you won't have to feel embarrassed if that's what was worrying you. It sounds really cute!

That sounds awesome. My kids do stuff like this all the time and I never quite know what to do with it.

Oh, please don't let my son get this idea! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> Do you actually live in a neighborhood where people might see the signs and come to the "museum" for a visit? We don't (only 6 houses on our cul-de-sac, all 2+ acres apart). But in our old neighborhood, on a street that many people used as a cut-through, I would have been a little nervous...<br><br>
Don't feel like a horible mother. You indulged him by allowing him to post signs in the neighborhood!

My kids have done things like this <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> It's really cute. You should take some pictures of his museum for sure. Any grandparents or aunts and uncles that can come?
