Here’s a glimpse at some of the funky fort building happening at the Anarchy Zone at the Ithaca Children’s Garden. Notice the negotiation between the girl in white and her mom to stay (inside the den) a half hour longer. At around 1:40 of the video the mom says “this half hour is instead of watching your show” into the hole in the straw bale fort, and the girl happily stays inside. Anarchy Zone: one, TV: zero. That’s what we’re talking about, right?
