Marshmallow Constructions

Maya and I had great fun yesterday creating constructions from toothpicks and marshmallows… (also some raisins, but they proved less popular!)…

We started off simple, making…

… a man and a house….

…. and our names …

Then things got more difficult, making….

… a snowflake…

… and a dome shaped house…

Before Maya realised that if you made a box shape, and connected it to another one…

… and made a whole layer of connecting boxes…

… You could come up with something really BIG!

This was a LOT of fun! 🙂

  1. Simple and brilliant! I am getting together in February with Antonio and Sophia to make valentines but i am also going to share this! This could keep a child entertained for hours!

  2. Great! We do this with dried spaghetti, joining pyramid constructions together to build massive domes, houses and rockets. So beautifully simple.
