While watching the video and the slide sin this section I had the idea to go to my local ReUse center. I know they have lots of small parts tool and items that I can place in a bin and have the kids use them.
I have also thinking about adding a nature table outside with magnifying glasses and tweezers. I can add some of the tools I get as well.
I see imaginations get crushed all the time because parents don’t have time anymore for kids to just be kids. I think it’s important that my program allow them to explore and discover without direction or interference.
