Students re-purpose their school’s empty milk and juice cartons into a Sports-themed creation! Football goal post, race car, bicycle, Olympic rings, trophies, baseball diamond replica, luge track, canoe race, snack bar, basketball, horse-riding, hockey arena, archery post, snorkeling – any representation of sports you find!
