Our latest maker space activity was a small first attempt to create a domino run. The carpet wasn’t quite firm enough so we tried the table. Setting up took a bit of time as there were lots of bumps that lead to everything tumbling down early.
We did have heaps of fun, lots of laughs and that is wonderful. Most children stood well back to avoid early crashes but as you can see we did try this on a very small scale. We did have little bits running well.
We will certainly do this again. Children will look at how well spaced they place the dominoes, better layouts, and we may even go to the hall and do a bigger attempt. The thing I love about maker space activities is that the children are encouraged to do everything themselves with very little intervention from teaching/adult staff.
A fun way to spend lunch time in the library.
