Escape Room in a library with my BFF Emy
To imagine puzzles for the new Mysterious Cartables I have to find new ideas. For example, talking with my family or searching the Internet. But what works best is to play games where there are puzzles. Continue reading “Escape Room in a library with my BFF Emy”

The creation of the Mysterious Cartable
At first I wanted to make an escape room in my school library to encourage children to read. But the teachers hesitated a little. And I was impatient. I wanted to move on.
I did not stop making plans in drawing or using LEGO bricks. So I started with what I had, that is to say my old schoolbag (in French a Cartable means Schoolbag), and I transformed it. Sometimes when your plan does not work, start with what you have. It seems that this happens often.
