The experience for building DOWN rather than UP was intriguing to the kids. It took effort not to yank the hanging pieces while pushing in new pipes. The structures became all sorts of things and their creativity expanded as they had to think on a whole new plane. This was such as success, that my coworker and I are now trying to think of other items that could be built down, around or sideways! We have thought of lego boards on a easel, Zoobs hanging from ropes, but what else? Any ideas??
Here are some of the experiences we had with the PVC:
|The finished "product" - Even Mopsy the bunny came to check it out!|
|Hard hats are recommended!|
|Much discussion took place as the children worked their way through the new building 'arrangement.'|
|The structure grew so large that extensions were laid flat on the ground.|
