The Flow Circus 2010 Summer Reading Performance Make A Splash…Without Making a Mess focuses on how with a little skill, we can all make a positive impact in our world. Below is a brief description of Paul’s show:
As a kid, performer Paul Miller was always getting in trouble. Then one summer all that changed with the gift a Japanese kendama. That popular toy and a trip to the library led him to discover juggling and other skill toys from around the world.
As the performance took shape, we realized that we wanted to provide librarians with the opportunity to provide the same discovery of new toys and skills for their patrons. We know that budgets are limited, so we sat down with string, masking tape, sticks, paper cups & fundama was born!
This website provides instructional videos on how to make and play with the different versions of fundama that we have created. You can also find resources about similar toys from all around the world. We have created suggested lesson plans for how you might incorporate this into your Summer Reading Program. Feel free to contact us with questions or fundama stories.
We hope to inspire kids to be creative and playful with whatever materials they might have laying around!
