I few month back I saw the TED talk of Tom Wujec about the Marshmallow Challenge. What fascinated me the most was the fact that according to Tom recent graduates of the kindergarten are building higher structures than the average adult. One of my credos is: “Never believe a statistic that you didn’t fake on your own”. So I phoned the head of our local kindergarten to ask if I could do the Marshmallow Challenge with the so called “Maxi-Kids”. These are the pre-schoolers of the kindergarten in the age of 5 years. And today morning I went there. What can I say, it was fun! I didn’t even have the time to explain everything in detail to them they just got started The results were quite amazing.
