1) Piece of bubble wrap

2) Piece of pool noodle

6) PomPom  

6) Toothpicks

Optional Items from Home:

Need an Extra Challenge?

1) Remove one key element from your design!  Can you still make a free-standing shelter?

2) See if your shelter holds up to a strong breeze by blowing on it.

3) Ask a parent or caregiver if you can use a hair dryer to see if the shelter holds up to gale force winds!
