Homeschool : Carpentry

My rice cooker conked out so we got a new one. It came in a box with some styrofoam to keep it in place. Here’s what we did with the styrofoam before we threw it away.
Carpentry work! This activity was fun and great for hand-eye coordination. I raided my husband’s tool box for the concrete nails – they weren’t too sharp (duller than a sharpened pencil) and were long enough for Caleb to hold.
The styrofoam was soft yet firm for the nails to be hammered into. When Caleb got tired hammering, he started pulling out the nails.
Fun with trash!
