During spring break my husband and the little ones were ill. Out of need to occupy Ibraheem (9), I got him a whole bunch of nuts and bolts and a sheet of pegboard and set him down with this project. Original idea was from Filth Wizardry. Ibraheem made two boards. Each measuring about 24 X 24 inches with 121 bolts on each.
Ilyaas (4) and Zakariyya (3) just got down to experimenting with shapes and it certainly helped in keeping their thoughts away from feeling sick.
Ibraheem has taken up to creating words and pictures on his geoboard.
Insha-Allah we are hoping to further explore geometric patterns using these geoboards.
