Man Of Steel workshop and easy sculpture ideas for kids

There are plans to build a 30 metre sculpture at the side of the M1. The Man of Steel sculpture - a figure sitting casually on a steel plinth - is expected to be one-and-a-half times taller than the Angel of the North.

 This is how the sculpture will look from different angles.
The sculpture has been designed by Steve Mehdi.
A couple of weeks ago, we went to a workshop based on the man of steel.
It started with a talk and quiz and then the children got to make sculptures.

 The models were very easy and enjoyable to make.
We made them out of the tape used to frame pictures, we were told that masking tape wouldn't work as well.

 Take a loop of tape,

 screw it up and make a ball.
Repeat and build up your sculpture.

Jemima made a tortoise.

 Imogen made a hand, which lost a finger on the way home.

 Rosanna made a princess and 
Reuben made a lion, which didn't even make it home!
The models can be sprayed with hair spray to fix them.
They look very effective and make great fly catchers too!
Happy building
