Suzette, A few years ago my students did carvings in styrofoam...they used
steak knives. Although students are not allowed to bring knives to school
nearly every male in the class did...I let them use them in class and they
were careful. Successful project..but you need to be careful with
cleanup...those styrofoam bits fly everywhere.
How about letting your students draw tatooes on the mannikins...or
design body tatooes for them. ?? Heidi McElroy
