Electronic strewing

Physical strewing is fun—shells, leaves, crystals, puzzles, widgets and tools... Younger children need to touch things, turn them over, feel their texture and weight.

Older children have more experience, and deeper questions. They're involved with collections and connections. Recordings, video, photos and trivia can be  photo DSC08964.jpg easily collected and shared, without needing storage.
