During time of free play, I took a roll of toilet paper and cut it into pieces. Then, Anastasia came and asked me what I was trying to do.
I told her “I’m trying to think what to do with this material, but I can not. Can you help me”?
She said we can make a case for pencils using the whole roll. Katerina came at the table and constructed a perfect case!
Then another idea came up. “We can make bracelets with the pieces you cut!”. So, Katerina, Artemis, Emily and Andriana made lots of beautiful bracelets.
Katerina said “hey, my case can also be used as a hanger for the bracelets!
Emily had another idea, and made a nice palm-tree!
So many ideas, with just some pieces of recycling paper…
