Today, two of the rotating cake stands were overlapping for awhile.
I was waiting for more play to develop along those lines when, suddenly, a helpful adult intervened:
I know the intentions were good, but .... this is why the Anji Play rule for grown-ups is "hands down." I set it up again with the stands overlapping, but the kids no longer took an interest in it because now it was something I had intentionally set-up (and it wouldn't have felt really authentic to me if they HAD played with it at that point). Sigh.
Instead, they were deeply engaged in the clay itself today for the first time in awhile:
Love this stack of clay:

And the big box finally got ripped! It was used first as a slide,
Knock it down, build it back up!
What do you think this triangle might be?

We are busy finalizing details of this summer's Wild Rumpus program. Locals, mark your calendars for Mondays (east side/ Reindahl Park) and Wednesdays (west side / Haen Family Park) from 4:30-7:00. The food carts will be there or you're welcome to pack along a picnic dinner. See you at the park!
