Week Twenty-Six -- Tremendous Trampolines

We got some great solutions this week! You all should be very proud of your ingenuity!

Mark did a magnificent job with his trampoline! He used a glass mason jar, an old sock, and rubberbands. You can see his video here.

Ellen did an excellent job! Ellen used a 1/2 cup measuring cup, covered it with a cut balloon, put felt and elastic on it and then had her little bear jumping on it.

Boo and Zee made a video of their solution! They did an amazing job using a balloon, a cup, and a 2 liter bottle. You can see their video here.

Snufkin and Moomintroll joined us again this week and did a superb job. Both were inspired by their old fashioned metal sprung beds and made rubber band bases before adding stretched fabric covers. Moomintroll used a parcel tape roll for his base, then added elastic bands and a handkerchief. Snufkin used a wooden box, tied round some string and then added rubber bands and a little scarf she wove herself for her doll. Both trampolines were very bouncy! Great work.
