The tools of childhood creativity

The Five Best Toys of All Time!  This is a great article about what kids really need for creative play: sticks, boxes, string, cardboard tubes, and see if you can guess the last one...

Pre K 4 teacher Michele says:

I have great respect for the stick, especially since Muddy Boots Club. The children measure the stick, carry it along, carry things on it, whack things but not too hard, poke, drag, but never hit each other, and then discard the stick at the end of the trail.
