|A view of the chaos!|
Station 1: Household Challenge
We challenged the kids to build a house using nothing except two sheets of paper, two pieces of tape, two band-aids and two paperclips. The original challenge we found online called for two pieces of gum, but we thought that might be a bit too messy and gross.
Station 2: Toothpick and Marshmallow Building
Station 3: Lego and Lego Challenge
I put together three different groups of bags, each group contained the exact same selection of bricks. Kids could choose A, B, or C and see what they could build with the Lego bricks within. Each child came up with a completely different construction. It was fun to see what they could come up with.
Station 4: Cup Building
We purchased 4 80 count 3 oz cups from Target and let the kids build whatever they wanted with them.

Station 5: Marble Roller Coasters
This was by far the favorite station and it was awesome to see the kids working together to make the roller coasters work. The pipe insulation was left over from a Science Camp program we did during the summer. I purchased 14 tubes from Lowe's and cut them in half. The kids used masking tape to adhere them to walls, tables, chairs, garbage cans, the floor and each other to create coasters.
|Thumbs up and ready to go. Notice the crossover with the cups!|
|Yay! It worked! Love seeing their enthusiasm.|
|Brothers working together.|
|This was a huge group effort as the coaster went into the next room.|
