    I love the linearity and creativity of this project.
    This guy is an inspiration. I can totally see handing students a stack of napkins to let them brainstorm for a writing assignment by making the drawings first and then rearranging them for a coherent flow. They would love the small space and ability to manipulate the order of their ideas by moving the napkins around.

    karen – i’m starting to think the a ‘back of the napkin’ training would be interesting. perhaps we can put one together that would mix, gt/language arts/visual thinking/problem solving all together!

    Children from a very young age can take just about anything and make something creative and meaningful out of it. When my own children were toddlers, they much prefered playing with the box the toy came in! Heck! I think I could appreciate napkins!
