Note: the Children Added Have Fun to These Thinking Bullets


Parking is a problem in urban cities.  This was on this child’s mind when he chose the construction area on this day.  We suggested that he and his fellow construction designer move onto a larger space to design and construct this giant parking lot.

In oder to challenge the children’s thinking, we’ve asked the children to:

  • state their choice of play
  • make a plan
  • choose materials for the plan
  • add complexity to the plan by adding to it once peers have examined their play
  • Note:  the children added have fun to these thinking bullets 

My challenge to adults who read this blog post, including me:  Have fun in your work/play!
