The kids and I tried out another one of the K’Nex building ideas…Frisbees! It had been awhile since we last used the K’Nex and we went through the same painful 5-10 minute learning curve again. After everyone remembered/figured out how to pick the sizes and shapes that would work for what they wanted, things got smoother. Each of us made three designs and then we took them outside to see how far each could be thrown. We took guesses as to which one would win the longest throw.
Based on our totally unscientific study including 1 throw each by whomever made it, the football shape won.
I tried to rally them into a few more throws to really test it out, but the neighbor came out and got chatty and we called it a day.
