Galimotos Still Going Strong

On a recent trip to Malawi, my husband brought me back these photos of my favorite toys.  I was pleased that children in Malawi are still as creative as I remember and my book Galimoto is still relevant today.   Take a look at what a child can do with a little wire and some scraps of cardboard and found objects, a little time without TVs and computers and a lot of creativity, dexterity and perseverance!   

And take a look at the giant galimoto built by the art teacher and students at a school I visited this past Spring!
