I had a bunch of recycled materials saved for the kids to create something, so we set it out and let them have free reign.
This gives the kids a new dimension in learning as they get to work in 3D.
This is great for getting their minds to solve problems.
Each child faced a problem in their design and had to figure out ways to solve it.
Maybe it is because we are a family of 8, but it took no time at all to save up the discarded materials for this activity.
Lesson: Don’t leave cups of water on the table, that ruined quite a bit when my cup was knocked over.
I need to do this activity more often. It gave the kids plenty of time to create something they loved and to work through and solve problems.
