Celebrate Kids EuroFest with a Danish children's film: The Flame and the Cotton Ball

This week, STEAM Team has gone international!   It may be the last day of this year’s Kids EuroFest, but we’ve still got one “hurra!” left -- we're watching Flammen og vattotten (The Flame and the Cotton Ball).  This award-winning short film from Denmark tells the story of a delightful, and very unlikely, friendship between the two title characters.
