Think Challenge -1

When the kids were much younger (2009 or so) I heard great things about a website called Kids Who Think. Each week she put up new challenges and lots of people got in on the act.  Recently Ami over at Walking By the Way put together a class syllabus based on those challenges.  My kids are just about the right age to do participate in these challenges now. We did the first our first one last Friday.

The Goal: Build the tallest tower you can with silverware.  Surprisingly, ED was the first to assemble something that stood upright.  After that LD took the lead.  These challenges are supposed to get kids to work together, but in this particular challenge the kids and I all worked on our own towers.

  1. My kids would love this! Mine are the ones who are (respectfully) building towers of creamers and jelly tubs at the restaurants, and always competing for the best design. My daughter had a waitress take a picture of her creations at Olive Garden one day! LOL.
