Constructing Confidence

Nurturing creativity targets children with modes of invention

Implications - With kids often distracted by sports or video games, finding ways to build their confidence and determination can be challenging among such diversions. As a means to encourage increased imaginative growth and tenacity, parents are turning to such things as cardboard toys and robotic kits to allow children to exert their energy through more creatively resourceful techniques. Youthful building activities utilize playful methods of construction to attract tots who admire invention, reflecting the need for more playful ways to enhance personal growth.
