Galimoto

For most of this school year, we have studied other countries. And as we journey through Africa, we discovered Galimoto, a book about the practice of Africa children making their own toys out of spare wire.

Since we didn't have any wire laying around, I picked up a spool of very flexible jewelry wire and let the kids create their own toys.



It took a little concentration...

...and patience to twist, pull and place the wire in the exact spot...


...and in the end, Cayli had made an Easter bunny.

I even joined in the fun and created a camera:

Hi Melinda,
Web page information... the human eye cannot focus on red and blue at the same time. That's why your text looks funny.
