We finished out our Under the Sea week here at day camp, finishing things up here with a spin, a float and a chomp. All the groups worked so hard all day on Friday to put some finishing touches on their projects, with folks adding movement, fabric, color and dimension.
On Fridays, we always remind these young tinkerers that 'slow is steady, and steady is fast.' When we start out working slowly, with concentration and focus, our works become steady and careful.. And, steady careful work is truly fast, because we're sure about all of our decisions. It is so tempting to rush when the end is in sight, but Friday afternoon is an important moment to remember that finishing is not one of our goals. We set out at the beginning of the week to collaborate, try hard, learn from mistakes, and build something bigger than ourselves. And, as a cool bonus, we ended up with an awesome underwater world to play in with our family and new friends.
