Project #1: Foam Strips

These strips allow kids to learn to connect the foam pieces together, balance, and use their imagination. This activity is endless and can be used with other toys. For instances, below the foam strips are used as a barn to hold the horses in. Some days the foam is built into a parking lot.

Total Time: 15 minutes

Supplies:
