Craft Ideas for Kids Using Styrofoam

I have a large amount of Styrofoam that I would like to recycle into something - perhaps a craft for children. The main problem is that the Styrofoam is in large pieces, most being about 1-2 inches in thickness, some even thicker.

Do you have any ideas? We are doing a craft table at our family reunion for the children and teens and would like to include it if I can find something. Thanks for your help.

You could cut the styrofoam into wreaths and make fabric or gumdrop wreaths.

You can use electric cutting knife to cut the Styrofoam with ease and shape it any way you like.

Cut it into useable "bricks" of different sizes and have the kids build lifesize structures with them, like lego or building blocks on a larger lighter scale. Maybe you could have a judging of what is built and give small prizes. They could even build as teams and get ribbons and small prizes

I just judged at a county fair, and they had shaped the foam into shoes, tennis shoes high heels flip flops and many others. Then painted them. They looked like real shoes.
