Review:
Kids imagine it, then create it - learning to move from an idea to making it happen. Kids learn to improvise by creating something out of 'nothing'. Kids develop valuable social skills - cooperation, problem-solving, and respect for new ideas. Kids learn to stretch their minds and 'think on their feet'. Kids explore life in various kinds of self-made 'structures', including a spider web, pyramid, igloo, nest, and general store.
