Hehe... when I was small (3-ish?) my mom had a "baby book" for me, basically a scrapbook with stickers that you could put on different pages, to commemorate little milestones in my life, etc. Well one day I found it and decided to "help", haha... which meant I just took ALL the stickers and stuck them all over the book!! I remember my mother being a little upset, heh.

When I was 3, a couple of my parents friends came over for dinner.  After we ate I asked to be excused to wash my hands.  It was taking me so long so my Dad came to check on me.  My parents were very upset to find out that I had given myself a hair cut lol.  My Dad had a mustache and he left his trimming scissors out by accident...I just wanted to see if they could cut...at least thats what I'm told because I've only seen the pictures.

Rock is dead.  Long live scissors!

When I was 10 my dad and I built a treehouse together (really just a platform with a railing) so my friends and I decided to "furnish" it.  We got beach chairs, a carboard box, a circle particle board table top, a bathmat I figured nobody wanted since it sat in the dusty un-used extra bathroom, plus some other random stuff that seemed unwanted.

We kept everything in the cardboard box with the tabletop over to protect from mild weather, but then came a week of non-stop rain.  We of course abandoned the tree house for warmer and drier pastimes and forgot about the "furnishings".  Needless to say when the missing items were discovered, the parents weren't happy.

If my future kids are anything like me or my fiance (god forbid they take up my fiance's childhood pyromania), we're going to have to keep a big box of scraps and junk items just for them to play with and destroy.

oh yeah, for sure! I remember when I was about 3-4 I would draw on the walls in the back hall all the time ---- I would be so involved in drawing that I would totally forgot that I wasn't allowed to draw on the walls. I would catch myself when it was too late. (And yup, my kids have done the same... Tongue)

Also I remember going into my mom's fabric stash (was sort of OK, depending on the fabric) and finding a black skirt that she had NEVER worn so I figured it was totally fair game. She was furious because she was just planning to look for it for a special event.... OOOPS....  Roll Eyes

I was always digging through the various stashes that she had -- buttons, old jewellry, beads, you name it. I probably did a few crafts that I "wasn't supposed to"... but with that much temptation who could resist? (Hmmm... maybe that's why I give my kids their own stashes of cool stuff! LOL)

My mom runs a ceramics business.  Thanks to one particularly fruitful afternoon of cleaning (see: destroying beyond recognition) greenware, I wasn't allowed to help her with greenware until I turned 20, and even then it was bregrudgingly.

And I still break pieces regularly: only now I call it customization Grin

I used to take my Mom's good soap and melt it down in a frying pan *on the stove*, making my "own" soap. What can I say, I was a bored latch-key kid with no cable tv or even homework to occupy me. Smiley

When she found out I was in BIG trouble. You know how she found out? The smell. But it was a very nice smell.

I once was doing some cutting and pasting at the dining room table (still preschool aged then) and as I was cutting I accidentally cut through my mom's 'good' table cloth! She wasn't particularly mad, maybe because I felt really bad about it, and she just sewed it right back up. We still have it, and I still feel bad about it!

Also, my brother used to cut holes in our curtains so that his GI-Joes could swing from them. That my mother wasn't particularly fond of! Wink

definetly destroyed many things "using" my moms paints... I was more or less just squirting them on everything thought would look good with some paint.
my younger sister drew and wrote on everything, including signing every card my mom got for her baby shower for me. Nothing was left undecorated... she is 21 now and not much has changed.

I also frequently got in trouble for playing with my grandmas antique spinning wheel... still tempts me. Smiley


...but for now we are young, let us lay in the sun, and count every beautiful thing we can see...

That's the reason why I haven't tried clothing recons yet. Cheesy I'm afraid I'll mess up a shirt that I paid for that was sort of good to begin with.
