Styrofoam Pounding

It's been a long time since I posted anything on this blog.  Things over at Chocolate & Chillies have been keeping me busy.  I wanted to share with you this activity I did with my boys.  A while ago my friend was visiting from Louisiana and she had her kids doing this activity. It's very simple and kids love it.  It is kids banging golf tees into a piece of styrofoam.  I wouldn't do this with a large group of kids because it can get dangerous.  I had trouble pulling out some of the pounded in golf tees.


I had a big piece of styrofoam so I had them bang that first.  After awhile I gave them their own small pieces.



They really enjoyed this activity.  Bilal just wanted to push and pull the golf tees.  Hasan had lots of fun pounding but he was pounding so much I couldn't get them all out.  After awhile I had to stop the activity because the boys were getting out of hand.

Materials Needed:
Styrofoam
Golf Tees
Any plastic cup for pounding

How To:
Give the child some golf tees and a plastic cup.  Let them pound away. Keep an eye on them to make sure they keep it safe and don't get too out of hand.
