Child Engagement

We have this theory that kids have a short attention span.  I say myth because from my observations, when engaged, children can stay focused for long periods of time,one single on task.  I observed this yesterday, when we took the paints outside. We painted with our hands and our feet.  We also created a little water world by filling different buckets with water and washed some toys and furnisher.  The children were engaged, attentive to their play and work.  Discipline was easy.  I think that the secret to being with children is getting to know them and facilitate their environment so that their spirits and creative minds are fed.  Once, this is accomplished everything is easy, well most of the time :)
