Whatsit?

Ages 5 to 8

Turn your trash into a work of art.

What You Need

What to Do

  1. Randomly select a number of materials you've gathered from around your home.
  2. Create a totally new “whatsit” that uses all the selected items, putting them together by using the scissors, stapler, paste or glue, tape, and hole puncher or hammer and nails. The whatsit can be functional and/or decorative, just as long as it's new and different.
  3. Explain the purpose of the whatsit to a friend, and, if necessary, demonstrate how it functions.
