We’ve all heard classic stories, now it’s time to live the lives of storybook characters young and old.  Royal gatherings, mining for resources, building large and small, and bravely questing for treasure are all part of living a storybook experience like no other.  Children’s creativity and enthusiasm for making the unreal, real are all that’s required to turn fairy tales into reality!

There is something so satisfying about setting something up and watching it work on its own.  Think long lines of tumbling dominos, slides and ramps for balls to roll through, and catapults to send objects soaring and careening off into the distance.  Builders will particularly love this week, but anyone who enjoys creating projects with moving parts should have a blast.
