Perseverance, practice and problem-solving!!

Sone of our little ones have been tackling the ‘balls and sticks’ construction set outside. Initially they found it a little tricky to get the sticks into place, but not to be deterred our resourceful children came up with different ways of trying to achieve this result; such as balancing the ball on the floor and then using the pressure of pressing down onto the ground to lock the stick into place, or getting a nearby adult to assist by holding it still for them… the more they joined, the easier this process became as practice truly did make perfect in this situation.

They were all so determined and focused upon making their desired structures and it was very interesting afterwards to hear their detailed descriptions of exactly what it was that they had all made. Xxxx
