Making the "giant ball thing"

Evening gatherings at school are a time where children of all ages can play together. At the Sabot Parent Association Ice Cream Social this week, Pippin, Nancy, Marty and I provided a tinkering challenge; 80 feet of gutter, some wire, logs from a hurricane damaged tree and a grocery bag full of tennis balls. Everyone from brand new students to long time veterans, from the youngest preschoolers, kindergartners and other elementary school aged students, to Middle Schoolers and Parents worked together build a "giant ball thing" against one garden wall.


  1. Nice! I love watching the different ages collaborating.... inspiring.

  2. This year is going to be so exciting to watch! Best of luck to you - enjoy the tinkering yourself, too!
