Making a catapult – looking at elasticity Elasticity is the ability of a solid to return to its original shape after being subjected to strain.

To demonstrate elasticity we made a catapult.

PVC Pipe Water Fun
PVC Pipes and funnels to let kids create thier own sprinkler fun:)
Summertime fun with PVC Water Play Set.
This outside engineering project uses PVC pipe and running water to captivate young builders for hours. The play is open-ended: kids experiment with various ways to put the pieces together, directing the water along different paths and adding such fun elements as funnels, tubing, and sprinkler heads. Tinkering with the construction is half the fun. The other half? Getting wet, of course! Note: I think ABS is less toxic!

I like to have a structured group project going on at all times for students to participate in whenever they have down time. Right now they are working on a large scale magazine collage color wheel.

Mess Free Finger Painting - this is GENIUS!!! kids craft
Mess Free Finger Painting- Squirt two primary colors in each of the 3 Ziplock freezer bags, with a white piece of paper inside or underneath. Get ALL of the air out of the bags & seal them shut. Tape them down with painter's tape.
Paint in ziplock bags, taped to table. Great distraction, no mess! (to add to this: I think, so long as the paper is under the baggie, you could write words, put stickers or little drawings, and then spread out the paint throughout the bag. They could then use their fingers to move the paint around and uncover little surprises, just like one of those Fisher Price Mess Free Finger Paints sets)
