Thinking outside the box
The scouts and playschoolers all had a chance to ‘think outside the box’… and to think inside the box as well! We had a big delivery of cardboard to play with, and simple instructions: Build what you like! Suddenly, there were forts, castles, draw-bridges, sleds, horses, swords, tunnels, mazes and all sorts being built inside and outside the hall.
Speaking of thinking outside the box, the teachers at the GAP were delighted to see the children thinking creatively about what possible alternate uses we could find for our toys. Among other things, it turns out that play traffic cones can be used to turn yourself into a penguin!
