I know I said I would be sharing these on Thursdays, but I think I will start to get confused and fall behind if I don't get the one we already did on here and out of my mind.
So today I am sharing pictures from the first of our Fun Day Thursdays, which was Marshmallow and Toothpick Art. What we did was dump a big pile of marshmallows onto a paper plate, dump a big pile of toothpicks next to it, and then started building stuff.
And when we were done, we enhanced them with edible markers.
It was a blast. And I felt bad they couldn't keep them, but there's a little issue with ants here. So I forced them to dismantle, and then consume every last bit.
Which you know they hated.
So without further ado, here are the pics.
Sleeping Beauty's Family of Five. The women have pointy feet.
They seriously played with these things for the rest of the day. It was HOURS worth of fun, and a great thinking project. There were a couple poorly engineered first attempts at houses, etc. but it made us all think harder on where supports should go, and what is the strongest shape.
The triangle, obviously.
Although they do make for tight sleeping quarters.
