I’m taking a short break from the Challenges while I work on my book. Start collecting those milk jugs and dried beans for the next creative challenges!
January 2013 – Milk Jugs or Cartons (NEXT CHALLENGE)

About the Creative Challenges
Every two months I host a Creative Challenge for kids with the introduction of a material and an invitation for children to create with. The objective of these challenges is to enable children to explore a material’s potential, build creative confidence, and envision new purposes for common objects…. skills that are at the heart of innovation.
If you’re interested in joining one of the past challenges (see below), you can enter your project at any time. Some of the challenges have link parties that you can add blog posts to, and all of them enable you to upload photos along with your comment. Please keep in mind that pojects should be child-directed, but grown-ups are welcome to join in the fun if the mood strikes!
If you’d like to join one of the upcoming challenges, plan to come back on the posted date (the next challenge is Monday, April 9, 2012) with documentation of your kid/s in action. If you’re a blogger, write a blog post to go live on that date, and you’ll add a link to the my blog on that day.
These materials could be turned into a piece of art, an experiment, an object…the possibilities are endless!
Hope to see you at the next challenge!
