Stop, Drop and Craft...Fundama!

We are excited to welcome Flow Circus as a part of line up for Summer Reading 2011! Summer may be months away but we were excited to offer a sneak preview for our theme of One World, Many Stories as we made and played games from around the world using skill toys based on their Fundama program.

What is Fundama?
From their website:
1. Easy-to-make toy using basic elements such as string, tape, cups, and sticks that provide hours of challenging play;
2. From the Latin fundus: the bottom or basis for engaging programs for children, 'tweens, & teens

Fundama will be explored further during the Summer Reading Club however check out the pictures and videos for a visual of what we will be doing.

Our newest group, Homechool Happenings!, were the first to be introduced to the games. Despite the small attendance, we were able to create The Freestyle.

Younger children enjoyed playing with the finished toys!

Later that day the ideas for the games were shared with our Stop, Drop and Craft group and the group had a blast! Some members made toys based using the instructions from the site but others got creative and made up their own.
