Mom, I made a lever!

We were fortunate enough to get some free scrap wood from the church down the street.  Simon has built a couple of rafts, a ladder and now…a lever!  Owen went running out to play with it too and then Simon discovered he had made a teeter totter/seesaw (which makes me curious as to which one of those you say and why?).

The next day they messed around with it some more with Daddy and discovered that even little ol’ Owen can lift Daddy with the right length of lever.

Really neat stuff.  I’m going to find some youtube videos about levers to put on our links page so they can explore a little further.  Perhaps I can leave some things lying around that could be used as smaller levers inside too.  A little strewing never hurt!
