Lego center – don’t have Lego people but everything else. Up to 10 people but there are specific “rules” listed at the station – When they leave, everything is taken apart and put back in the bucket. Rotated every three weeks.
Other ideas: Cardboard creations, K-Cup Creations – making towers, Rainbow Looms – making bracelets (perhaps a fundraising idea), Marble Runs, and Math Manipulative Towers. Excellent ideas were presented here!

We will post results weekly. Our goal is to walk at least 87,653,456 steps together — which equals one time around the earth, but we hope to do even more!”
