  1. Thanks for including our shape garden under your list :)
    Loved the article about kids being allowed to get bored.

  2. Thanks for featuring our bottle rocket.

  3. The article “Children Should Be Allowed to Get Bored” was a great read for me. I often wonder how seemingly constant exposure to tech toys/smart phones/etc is affecting children (and adults, for that matter). It seems like like an easy connection that the distractions caused by these things would make entering a creative mindset challenging. Thanks for sharing.
