The above work was made by a boy who swore that he had never made his own transformer before. But using just cardboard and a few rubber bands, he made a car that refolded into an alien robot! All without drawing or planning in advance; he knew exactly how to create the vision he had in his mind.
As I tell my kids, I try to give them as much opportunity as possible to think for themselves; not mimic my thinking. It's always inspiring and exciting to see what kids will create when given the chance!
