Has there ever been anything better than a giant box and some crayons?

I think art works best when you give a child all the tools they need and they can work their own ideas out on their canvas. In Reggio Emilia education philosophy, children speak a hundred languages. Art is one of those languages. I love watching her create. She drew huge sweeping arches in different colours and said they were rainbows.
