A cardboard box (shoe boxes, amazon boxes, small boxes, etc) is the perfect thing to use to help kids think flexibly, be creative, and set the groundwork for problem solving.

She also wrote Not a Stick!!


Set out open ended creative materials, like markers, tape, glue, construction paper and see what children create!
