If you can see your path laid out in front of you step by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.-—Joseph Campbell

Pandora’s Box

pandorasboxYesterday in my after school class we read Pandora’s Box by Jean Marzollo.  It’s a wonderful telling of the classic myth for children of all ages. The children couldn’t think of a hot cereal (oatmeal), related the curiosity of what’s in the box to Christmas presents, and had many suggestions about “bugs” released into the world when the box was opened.  Oatmeal? Bugs?  Well, it’s an updated version.

foldingboxAfter the story each child made his/her own box, colored the outside to stimulate curiosity, wrote HOPE on the inside bottom where it would safely remain and filled it with scraps of colored paper bugs to be released when the lid is opened.  A visual reminder of this timeless tale.
