Bendaroos Donates to Local Detroit Schools

Students at 24 Detroit Public Schools are being donated thousands of packs of colorful Bendaroos® Flexible Building Sticks that will be used in their classrooms.  The donation is part of the “Bendaroos® Building Creative Classrooms” initiative, which aims to inspire children to bend, twist and shape 2-D and 3-D creations, stimulating kids’ imaginations and making learning fun.

My children spend hours creating the designs that are sent with the colorful Bendaroos and creating their own fun designs.  They can make a design and then take it apart and recreate another design.  The possibilities are endless!

Bendaroos are also great for road trips!  I had some mini packs that we took on our trips to New York and to Florida and the girls had so much fun creating objects over and over.  It really opens their creative minds!

Teachers can find classroom activities, lesson ideas, templates and project ideas at:  Content ranges from early learning activities to help with numbers, shapes and colors to more complex lesson ideas focusing on chemical reactions, fractions and history.

Bendaroos are under $20 for a 500-piece pack, and are an affordable, creative learning tool.  To make them more accessible to teachers, Allstar Products Group is offering a special classroom coupon for $5 off a Bendaroos® 500-Piece Mega Pack.  Teachers can visit to learn more.

“Bendaroos® Building Creative Classrooms is about supporting teachers and fostering kids’ imagination through tactile, creative play,” said Anne Flynn, Vice President of Marketing for Allstar Products Group.  “Bendaroos® offer an affordable way for teachers and parents to stretch a child’s imagination and keep learning fun at school and home.”

To kick off the district-wide donation, second grade students at Vernor Elementary School recently participated in a special Bendaroos® workshop.  The students celebrated creativity in the classroom with a variety of hands-on educational activities using Bendaroos® building sticks.
