WonderWorks: VELCRO!

This soft and sticky reusable fastener is truly a technological wonder!

Today's Topic: Hook & Loop Tape (Velcro)
--as many different kinds of hook and loop tape as you can afford to get! (we had adhesive Velcro dots, Velcro zip ties, Velcro hair rollers, Velcro "one wrap" by the yard.... I purchased them from a fabric store and a hardware store)
--Soft things that will stick to the "hook" side of Velcro (pom poms, yarn, felt, fleece)
--Hard things that will not stick (buttons, paper clips, blocks)
--Wooden blocks
--Wiffle balls
--knit mittens and hats
--craft sticks
