The other day we were playing a game where we were pretending our shakers were fish. After our fishes had been swimming, diving, swimming fast, swimming slow, etc., I asked the children (a group of four-year-olds) what else the fish could do. A little boy held the shaker up behind his shoulder and said, "Throw a football!" as he demonstrated the movement. The other children loved it and after that the fishes played tennis and other games!
This is the kind of "out of the box" thinking that young children do so well and with our encouragement, grows into real creativity.
