Thinking Thursdays: Space to create

Hello! We've a busy day ahead, so I'll just leave you with a video for some food for thought:

I thought it was a great reminder, that sometimes all children need is space. To create, to explore, to experiment. What do you think? Are our kids over "enriched" in terms of learning programmes?


  1. Nice! :) Hmmm I think it more that as parents, okay, me anyway, sometime afraid of the kids making a mess, or being 'anal' in wanting to help them "do it right" or scared that they will come to harm with using some tools (as pointed out in the video) that we either place restrictions on the kids so that they don't have the freedom to be truely creative. I constantly have to remind myself to step back and let the kids "try things out".

  2. Pamela: Being afraid they'd hurt themselves or make a mess is one of my major concerns too! I sonetimes nag when the mess starts, & I'm trying to be more open to leaving them to experiment, like you mentioned!
