Links and ideas for innovation and alternative learning styles.
I didn’t know it was called Strewing when I started doing this with my children when they were young.. I just left out things I thought they would like, and changed things round so they had new things that caught their eye. It then gave them a selection of things to choose from, or perhaps a trigger for another idea. What I have always loved (and admittedly found frustrating sometimes) is that I can offer up 5 lovely ideas of things to do, that I may have researched or just thought of and very regularly my child or children will listen to the ideas and then come up with an idea of their own that has no connection with any of the things I have suggested. Many times the idea they come up with ends up being really good. Perhaps the offer of my ideas triggers something for them. I think it must do, else the lure of television can be too easy an option.
This article describes Strewing and gives some ideas too….
