Google+ bakers and astronauts: Shoebox Living

Shoebox Living

I like the concept for this project, Shoebox Living.

"125 Children aged between 8 and 10 were given a shoebox and asked to recreate their bedroom, or a room from their home, and to write a few sentences about it."

This is an interesting medium, and an interesting prompt for young children.  How would four- and five-year-olds deal with the idea of taking something they fit in and minaturizing it?  The use of recycled and reused materials adds an interesting element to the finished product, too.
