"It turns out that all that time spent playing make-believe actually helped children develop a critical cognitive skill called executive function. Executive function has a number of different elements, but a central one is the ability to self-regulate. Kids with good self-regulation are able to control their emotions and behavior, resist impulses, and exert self-control and discipline."

I created this game for our Creative Curriculum unit on buildings. It includes the story of the Three Pigs...so I thought a science center using moving items by blowing them (like the big bad wolf) I called it the big bad wolf game which makes it much more fun than the blowing through a straw game. Each child has A collection of objects and a straw. I'm glad I lined the box lids with contact paper since it tends to get a little "spit" on it. Some kids aren't the most graceful blowers!
