Weekly Challenge

Build a tower out of your recyclables!

This week we challenge you to build a tower using any recyclable materials you have on hand. For example, you can use bottles, boxes, cans. There is one rule though! You cannot use any tape, glue or adhesive to keep your tower standing. How high can you go? Show us your work on our special post Friday for a chance to receive a ballot to be entered for a chance to win our Summer Reading Club prize.
