I finally got things together to add a new center to our free choice time. I put this picture up as an option for the kids without telling them anything about it. Of the first 5 who went to pick their choice for today, four picked this with no idea what it would be.
They loved it! I have a few remote controls, a couple of portable CD players and a DVD player, all of which are broken. I have six screwdrivers and two pairs of pliers. The kids loved taking the items apart. So far the joy all seems to stem from unscrewing screws. I hope eventually they will find some interest in what is actually inside the items. For now, I'm happy they're excited about it!
