This week we are looking at the things children play with, and more specifically, we are thinking about what children learn from the things we give them. Today's picture shows a "Soap Box Derby" car. These were typically small push cars that children built, with help from their parents. The cars were used to push around the neighborhood, or used in down hill races or rallies that were held periodically in the community. The good thing about these was that Children learned to image, create, and build. It also provided quality time with the parents or grandparents.
