Funky Sculptures

I'm currently teaching an afterschool class based on three-dimensional art. Instead of going to a craft store and loading up my basket with a bunch of items that may wind up in a landfill, I sometimes have better luck just looking around my house. We are currently remodeling our powder room and our sink was packaged in this styrofoam. My husband cut it into squares using a band saw, a coping saw would also work. It made the perfect base for these wild little sculptures. I had some leftover pipe cleaners and picked up the straws at the grocery store, unfortunately they are individually wrapped. How ridiculous! The colored paper is actually leftover foam core or card stock. I used a hole punch to cut holes in the centers.
The kids had fun with these. They were simple to execute and will put a smile on your face.
