We set up an Imagination tree in our classroom! At first we just put out wire and beads for the children to explore and decorate with. Then the children begun to add items of their own. Protip: if your children are younger, under 4, pipe cleaners are a better choice over wire for them to manipulate. And it adds color to their masterpiece!
Our kids added paint color samples, charms, buttons, and even an ornament. I am going to keep the tree up for a little while longer but am amazed at how diverse and intricate it has become already!
