If you give a kid a bucket, he will want to fill it with dirt.

If you give a kid some dirt, he’ll want to mix it with water.

If you give a kid some water, he will pour it all over himself.

If you give a kid some paper towels to wipe up the spills, he will unroll the whole bunch, shred them into teeny tiny bits, and try and flush them down the toilet.

If you give a kid a toilet plunger he will immediately use it to start sword fighting his brother.

If you give a kid a handful of sanitizer he will rub it into his hair and create a self styled Mohawk.

If you give a kid a hairbrush he will bust into off key karaoke while gyrating wildly around the house.

If you give a kid a set of loud tunes to jam to, he will want to drum along with the beat.

If you give a kid a set of drum sticks he will wail on every pot and pan in the house.

If you give a kid a pot or pan he will lug them up to the sand box and use them to “cook” with until they are completely scoured of all nonstick properties.

If you give a kid a hose pipe to rinse off the pots and pans he will demand a bucket.

Theoretically speaking, of course.
