The Joy of Building
We ran errands this morning, including a stop at the library to pick up some books that we put on hold that had come in. My kids can't leave without doing a little building. Angus made a castle.
Zhara decided that she wanted to work on symmetry today. She learned about symmetry awhile ago, and then had it reinforced by the teacher at the Nelson the other day regarding the masks that they made. So today she made the two sides of her castle completely symmetrical. Beautiful.
They have been working all afternoon on building dinosaurs out of old cardboard boxes and then dressing them in elaborate costumes they are making out of my old fabric stash. Pictures to follow when the creatures are complete.
