Five Little Things : Building

Children seem to love building. With wooden blocks, kaplas and legos or with sticks and stones and whatever else they can get there hands on outside. There's a lot to be said on this subject. I'm going to post more about it really soon with some of my thoughts on what my three home educated kids are getting out of their building activities and why I believe they might be an essential part of childhood education. But for now, due to a very hectic week here are some photos of a fort the kids built with their cousins while on holiday using Hazel and weaving techniques.
