Arts and Crafts: Engineering and Architecture with Marshmallows and Pasta!

  • You’ll need dry spaghetti noodles and mini marshmallows. Gumdrops work too, if you’re low on marshmallows.
  • To build, stick the spaghetti noodles into the marshmallows and gumdrops to connect them and create structures.
  • You can also use toothpicks, ice cream sticks, or break the spaghetti into pieces for shorter sections.
  • You can start with simple squares and cubes, and then connect them for more complex structures, like space vehicles, etc.
  • Here’s some inspiration to get you started: https://modernparentsmessykids.com/stem-activity-gum-drop-engineering/.
  • HAVE FUN!!!
