Over two days Elliott, Wes and Jonah worked collaboratively adding more and more materials. A castle was created with deliveries made through a hanging basket. The castle turned into a jail and then a dungeon. But alas, the castle became flooded so Jonah brought in pipes to drain the water. When the castle was habitable again pumpkins were brought in to celebrate Halloween and finally beautiful stuff decorations inspired a Christmas party.
As they worked the boys listened to each other’s ideas. They built upon the stories they were hearing from one another and worked out a solution as to how to hang the basket. The thrill was in adding increasingly more materials and adapting their stories accordingly.
