What to do with all that styrofoam? Keep it. Hoard it. Collect more. And then let your kids use it like giant Legos.
“The boys … helped arrange the pieces, then I wielded the hot glue gun,” explained Jeff Slomba, a sculptor and art professor in Connecticut. “They also drew all over it with Sharpie markers.”
“The styrofoam was all scavenged, curb picked, donated by relatives and appliance stores. Also I snagged the packing every time someone at work got a new computer.”
And he had this hint: “It helps to tape the pieces together while the glue cools- it take a few minutes for the glue to cool since styrofoam is an insulator.”
Note: Slomba’s solo work is worth a look, too.
