Mini Golf - Week 4

Mini Golf (Winter 2019)Katie McClungComment

It’s already week 4! We are halfway through our 8 week session and our “Volcano”, “Blobby Dog”, and “Dragon Golf” teams have been working hard and bringing their mini-golf courses to life. The Volcano team got their PVC volcano to stand on its own and they now have a putting green that is ready for testing! Next step: making putters! Blobby Dog team made a head for good ole’ Blobby out of plywood using the jigsaw and also worked on making the dog house stronger. The Dragon Golf team made putters and also made lots of progress on the outside of their flying dragon and ball pit.
