8th Kingston Guides
Marble Route - Another good one is having a old clothes
rack and a bunch of recycled goods such as tubes, bottles,
cardboard, paper, elastics, tape, glue, etc. and tell the girls
that they have to build a way for the marble to get from the top
of the rack to the bottom. There aren't any more instructions---
just go to it!
Bridges - Build a bridge out of popcycle sticks ---- this is neat but takes a really long time.
Airplane - As well, you could give a group of girls the same things in a bag and they'd have to make an airplane or whatever out of it.... it can't be a projectile. And then have competitions with it, on whose flies the futherest, the funniest, shortest, etc. We were given newspaper, a paper roll, a wooden spool, a piece of string, some tape, and i think that's it.....
