826 is an organization that provides creative writing workshops for children. Their writing centers are fronted by a store front that sells fun thises and thats. We visited The Boring Store in Chicago this past Christmas with our Agent Evil O.
Of course we had to visit 826Boston, which happens to be called The Greater Boston Bigfoot Research Institute. Agent Evil O brought her secret spy attache with her and carefully picked out more items to complete and compliment her secret spy kit. Big Sister picked out her own specimen examination kit as well. Unfortunately we haven’t had a chance to participate in the creative writing part yet, but these storefronts inspire creative play like no other.
