Canton had is first makers class today! He was so excited to go, not even grumpy to wake up, a first! During introductions they were asked to say their name, age, favorite tool, and something they have made. Canton said DUCT TAPE and his cardboard rocket!
Their mission was to select a toy from a huge pile of broken/discarded toys and try to “hack” them. It was a great intro lesson for safety and learning about various tools. Canton selected a rather difficult toy, between him and three adults we could not get it to work. Which, was just fine for Canton as it turned out. He got a lot of practice with the different types of screwdrivers and was allowed to keep his toy at the end since it didn’t work (ones that could be fixed were returned) so he covered his is duct tape (of course) and pipe cleaners and made a spaceship! 🙂
He also made a map in Geography with cities named after some elements. During intros he said his favorite country is Russia and the place he most wants to visit is the Mariana Trench (deepest point on earth) 🙂 (video coming)
Liberty was a trooper! She was happy to sit and watch brother, cuddle with her animals, and play ball for a few minutes.
