Duration: 40 minutes/Group Size: Any Tool box:
  • 2 (36- by 48-inch) corrugated display boards
  • Masking tape
  • Heavy-duty double-sided carpet tape
  • 24-by 36-inch zinc-coated metal sheet - (Home Depot's duct section)
  • Work gloves
  • Rolling pin
  • Ruler
  • Craft knife
  • Multipurpose plastic ties and adhesive mounting bases - (Home Depot's electrical supply section)
How To: Base Layer: With one display board facedown, apply masking tape along the two prescored fold lines to keep the flaps stable. Apply double-sided carpet tape to the board and the metal sheet, as shown (you may want to wear gloves to handle the metal,) then remove the tape backing. Center the metal sheet atop the presentation board (trace lines beforehand to make this easier,) then cover its edges with more double-sided tape. To make the bond very secure, go over the sheet and the taped edges with the rolling pin, using firm pressure. Set the base layer aside. Frame:  Lay the other display board face down and apply masking tape along the two prescored fold lines. Draw a rectangle with sides 7 1/2 inches in from each of the edges. On a protected work surface, use a craft knife to cut out the rectangle to create a frame. Apply double-sided tape to the frame, especially along all the edges. Remove the tape backing, and with the frame faceup, align one edge with the base layer and lower it, as shown. Use the rolling pin to press the sections together.   At Home: Attach the cardboard headboard to the posts of your existing one using the plastic ties and adhesive mounting bases. Secure it in at least four places. If your bed doesn't have a headboard, you can hang your creation on the wall with screws or nails.   Debrief: Before the Jews left Egypt, G-d commanded them to put sheep near their beds as a preparation for the Exodus. What can we stick on our headboards to remind us to leave our personal Egypt?
