Foam on Mac Tac

The foam pieces on Mac Tac continues to be a very popular centre.
This child spent a long time creating a self-portrait today. She worked carefully to bend and twist the foam into shapes that she felt helped to represent what she looked like.

We noticed that a symmetrical design emerged in her work, which led to an interesting discussion on what symmetry is and how we can use it to help us create interesting pictures and designs.

Letters are formed on the Mac Tac by bending the foam in different ways. This takes patience and perseverance as the foam doesn't easily stay shaped in tight bends on the Mac Tac. Little fingers have to diligently work to 'write' with the foam.

A beautiful masterpiece!
