Wire experiments

What to do with left-over wire? In Robins Daycare, we tried bending it into interesting shapes and using cardboard boxes as stands for the sculptures. Throw in some extra wire leaf decorations donated from a florist, and you get an unconventional, engaging activity.

Learning along the way: Fine motor skills, vocabulary for shapes and lines, new uses of materials, 3-dimensional spatial awareness, etc.
