I saw few cardboard boxes
I saw few things made up of cardboard boxes (doll house, fridge, sofa etc).
I thought I can make for kids at the campus.
I decided to not make it!
I collected few and decided to not to make. I kept all the boxes as "resource of the day".
Day one, two kids picked up a large box and spent a day with it. At the end of the day they told me " we are going be lot more busy tomorrow, lot of work to be done" and they carefully kept their six feet long cardboard box next to their bed.

The fourth week of summer began with parents and kids joining with a constraint that kids are not kids and parents are not parents but all are equal. The equality is not easy but the week began with experiencing the life in a space where all are equal and all needed to speak for themselves be it food or bedding or work on their interest.
