POOL NOODLE CHALLENGE
Stack 'em up
Supplies: plastic disposable cups
Kids love stacking cups and it’s a great exercise in engineering and coordination. Give them a bunch of cups to see how high they can stack them in a minute. Once they get good at that, you can up the challenge by asking them to use the cups to design other shapes such as a rectangle or an octagon.
