Marshmallow and Toothpick Structures

This was the perfect art lesson for those children who may be creative but aren't as enthused about drawing and painting. Using only mini marshmallows and toothpicks the children were encouraged to build a structure of any kind. I gave them the tip that triangles held up better than cubes, but they were left to their own trial and error exercise. This was a hit throughout all my classes. It was great to see see some of the kids beam with pride at their success.
