The Pea Project

My kids spent a recent afternoon making art projects in our living room.  The medium of choice?  Paper, glue and dried split peas.  I had an old bag in the pantry and two bored kids, it seemed like a good idea at the time.  After the creative process had run its course, we cleaned up, and the kids got down on all fours to pick up little peas all over the floor. Which, now that I think about it, is pretty darn amazing.  Way to go girls!

Well, that was 2 weeks ago.  I’ve swept and vacuumed a dozen times since then, each time picking up a few more peas.  How is this possible??  I think they’re multiplying.

Today, I swept the kitchen floor and this is what was in there.


Not one or two…an entire pile!  Where do they keep coming from?

I’m pretty sure I heard them laughing as I threw them in the trash.
