Box Construction

We do a lot of work at the kitchen bench! Today the children wanted to construct three dimensional flying objects. I often forget about artistic construction for them, but they love it, and it's so easy to grab some boxes out of the recycling bin and give them some sticky tape. Evie usually wants to make the same as Finn with some slight variations, and that is fine. Finn has a really clear image of what he wants to create and I allow him access to the resources he needs. 

I try not to interfere in what they are doing (unless they need help with the tape or scissors). I think it is important that they engage in the problem solving and creative process in their own way.
