I love open ended art and so do the girls. Basically you put a bunch of random craft items on the table and let the kids go to it. This time we had two exact pieces of cardboard (can`t remember from where) and the girls decided on two different uses, they quickly grabbed some paper, craft sticks, glue and markers.
My eldest who is really into map making lately decided to use the cardboard as a bridge and added some other important items (school, road, bus stop etc.). My youngest is really into playing `mommy`and so she turned her cardboard into a very fancy diaper change mat.
They both had a blast creating and using their imagination!!
It`s amazing what they will come up with when not given an expected end product. It`s also a fun way to use some household garbage before it gets to the curb.
