Think Outside the (Cardboard) Box
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.
A book I love to read to spark a child’s creativity with cardboard boxes is called:
Not A Box by Antoinette Portis
She also wrote Not a Stick!!
Set out open ended creative materials, like markers, tape, glue, construction paper and see what children create!
Take a listen!
