Mahiti (Age 8) has been facinated with horses. Wanting to draw horses, paint them, stitch them. Last year for our Poetry mela she chose a poem about how to love a horse  to illustrate and share with others. The other day , she was swinging on the tyre swing and walked up to me with a smile on her face.

When she was sure I  was listening to her she shared ….

 ‘I have an idea! I want to make a horse I can ride. See , I will explain…. –looks around… finds a cardboard box…. gets into it…– so, I want the horse around me , so I can ride it. and we can use some boxes for the neck and head.’

Our learning space for the young children is consciously stocked with a variety open-ended material. For the children to easily access, use, play and learn with.

Cardboard boxes are a open-ended resource material that lends itself to versatile unstructured play/learning beautifully.

It takes the children on an adventure and helps them explore the imaginary places in their minds.
