|Materials for sailboats...corks, rubberbands, long plastic toothpicks, and crayons for decorating.|
That night I went to Home Depot and bought two 10' plastic gutters (they were less that $6 each). My co-teacher had the same idea and also bought end pieces for the gutter she bought. We put the one with end caps in the sandbox in a ditch that the kids built.
It would have worked better if we had a hose. Instead the kids had to keep bringing the water from the end bin (which was lower) back to the start bin.
|This is an assembly line to move the water back to the top bin. :)|
