I really like the idea that to let children play with food, to give them an new idea of how to show kid that we can always think the other poing of view of things. Rainbow Fish Craft Using Celery as a Stamp - Great craft for kids!
Crate seats...use plastic crates purchased from your local walmart, plywood cut to fit the top, foam, fabric and a staple gun. What a cute idea for a child's room or a classroom reading corner. The "seats" can lift off so you can use the crates for storage.
