Christy asked:

Does anyone have any successful sculpture ideas geared toward 9-12 that
can be made on a very limited budget? I would really appreciate your help
and ideas. Thanks!

Here's one:

Work in groups.
Use heavy duty lawn or garbage bags taped with duct tape to create the forms.
One end is attached to a simple box window fan to inflate. As long as the
fan is going, the form will stay inflated. The sculptural form has no actual
limitation in size, shape or form; large ones just take longer to inflate. We
had one long tube go over the roof of the school. Stay away from thin ml
plastic for safety reasons.

Cost is relatively small.
