Art Corner - Paper Balancing Toys:
These weighted, participant decorated, 3-D half circle sculptures rock back and forth on a table top. With a more energized flick of a finger, they summersault in the air and land on their feet, every time. Inspired by the recovery journey itself, these simple toys are easy for participants to decorate using markers or pencil crayons, to assemble according to simple directions using glue/tape, string and a weight. Intended for children, children of all ages will find success in this fast and easy to engage project.
