What Were They Thinking?

Benjamin came home from school yesterday, proudly carrying his latest craft projects, pictured here. Yes, in case you are wondering, the matches are real. (I took one out of his "big bomb" and tried it out, just to be sure.)

Now seriously... who thought it would be a good idea for kindergardeners and first graders to assemble matches and toilet paper rolls? Who thought it would be fun to put matches with corks? Whatever happened to "Don't play with matches?" And on what planet do matches belong in an elementary school craft kit?

Perhaps I'm overreacting... (she says as the house burns down around her...) I'm just waiting for an appropriate time for these creations to disappear, or contribute to the fireplace. Sorry, but these aren't "keepers".
