Knex creativity

The boys got their box of Knex out this week. Finlay made a satellite.

Adam followed the instructions in the box and made a race car.

This kept them busy for several hours! It interests me to watch the boys' creativity as they each have a very different approach: Finlay has a lot of imagination and is forever making things out of whatever he finds (for example the bee trap); Adam is more like me - needs to follow instructions - but once he has the intructions he can make something quite complex.

They are fantastic boys. Imagination and creativity - a true innovator - and being able to follow complex instructions - how many adults can do that? They need to go into business together - the perfect Belbin team.
