Why limit yourself to regular toys when there’s a whole world of crazy objects out there to crawl in and out of? Kids are so imaginative when it comes to playing with household items, or even outdoor gardening items. It must be easy when you’re so small that you can crawl into and hide in the tiniest of spaces. Some of my fondest memories growing up were from building magical wonderlands out of regular objects around the house.
This sweet little boy seems to love the outdoors! So much so that he managed to climb into and get stuck in a flower pot. Now this is something I’ve never seen before. Even though he’s a tiny tot, it couldn’t have been too easy for him to slip in through that narrow little opening of the decorative ceramic pot. He’s out of ideas about how to escape this sticky situation as he shows mom who is behind the camera how tightly he’s wedged in. According to dad, this isn’t the first flower pot that this crazy boy has been found hiding in. This clever kid has made a hobby of flower pot hopping, but this time, he’s gotten himself into a pickle. He tries to hoist himself out of the pot with all his strength, but can’t seem to get past his little waist. It seems that the only solution left is to break the pot with the little boy in it to get him out. Dad and uncle come over with a hammer, and dad gentle cracks the pot open with one fail swoop. The flower pot breaks in half and uncle rescues his little nephew by lifting him up and out. Thank goodness for adults!
Let’s talk about flower pots for a moment. Flower pots are now often also made from plastic, wood, stone, or sometimes biodegradable material. An example of biodegradable pots are ones made of heavy brown paper, cardboard, or peat moss in which young plants for transplanting are grown. For seedling starting in commercial greenhouses or polytunnels, pots usually take the form of trays with cells, each cell acting as one small pot. These trays are often called flats. There are often holes in the bottom of pots, to allow excess water to flow out, sometimes to a saucer that is placed under the flowerpot. The plant can use this water with its roots, as needed. Recently, some flowerpots have been made with an automatic watering system, using a reservoir.
One of my favorite classes in high school was pottery. I remember making all kinds of clay pots that my mom still has on display in her house today like they are exceptional pieces of art. Moms are so great at keeping all those childhood trinkets that may not be masterpieces but hold sentimental value. I’m sure this kid’s mom will hang on to a piece of this broken pot forever to remember this funny memory!
