Cross Age Interaction

Older children can show how to do hard things, like getting this wheel to stay on the axle.
One of my favorite things about this studio is the way children of different ages can work together. Here are 2 stories where 5 year olds show younger children how to make something work. Often, younger children give inspiration to older friends as well.
After getting a little bit of help from his older friend, he could work on his own

3 year olds try to hang this paper on the easel with tape. It is not quite working.

A 5 year old uses his hands to show how "you have to stick the tape ACROSS the paper so it sticks to the easel."
