Push pins

My husband brought home some foam that they were throwing out from work, this is not styrofoam – it doesn’t crumble up in pieces everywhere. So we are using it in different ways to teach & for fun! We have done the styrofoam with the golf tee’s but I find the push pins work best, easier for their little hands to push through! Here is one way we used it yesterday.

I took a coloring page out of one of my kids coloring book, pinned it to the styrofoam, them with complete supervision I gave my tot some push pins to trace the sea creatures (we are learning about sea animals this week).
When he was done with that we did push pin patterns.
