Yes, from the mouths of a kindergarten student thinking outside the box this afternoon, come the invention we have all been waiting for! A "gym" space were humans can run on treadmills, fast, and cars can go to learn to go on race tracks, fast! That's how one little guy explained his block creation to me. He then proceeded to demonstrate how that would work! I smiled, as he eagerly explained his creation....while my mind raced to the possibilities of this creation!
What if there were gyms where we could work out while our cars were cleaned?
What if there were gyms where we could work out AND get our laundry done at the same time?
What if there were gyms where people and their dogs could both work out at the same time?
What if there were gyms where someone would pay our bills while we worked out?
What if there were gyms where we could relax while the pounds and inches melted away?
Tangential thinking on my part; however, I am reminded of the potential to think outside of the box and shape their environment in creative ways every time I sit knee to knee with an eager young learner.
