For my project I will focus on a target group of children in the age between five and around eight years. This is normally the time when they are in a stage between kindergarten and primary school. The special thing about this age-group is, that they are able to understand more complex subjects as well…

This insights of how the children used the objects gave me insights about the objects themselves. Second there where actions around the objects which aren’t obvious…
