Ha! I bet that got your attention. This is one of the coolest footstools I have ever seen.
This was a footstool down at the Wadena Historical Museum. They have a really nice Museum and they are open year round, so I will head over there again sometime next winter. I was tempted to turn it over and look at the bottom. I know better than to touch! I try to enforce the “Look but do not touch” policy..and I know how hard it is not to touch..especially for children.
I am working on a couple of hands on displays for children. I think that children learn by touching and doing more than they do by listening to some old lady drone on and on. I have a display up and running now..but no kids have tried it yet…eventually I would like to have one or two children’s activities per room. I am anxious for feedback from a few kids…or maybe some little kids at heart..I tried it and thought it was fun. I will share after I get some feedback:)
