Cocktail stick sculptures

A quick post with a simple idea but

this is a great problem solving activity to help develop a child’s creativity,

imagination, cognitive skills, problem-solving abilities,

fine motor skills, and much more.


I did this one before but we used grapes.

This time we tried mini marshmallows.



There are no instructions.

All you need is

A handful of marshmallows

A bunch of sticks

and your imagination.


Now it was wobbly and a bit tricky.

The grapes were much easier and sturdier.


Even so, the kids made some amazing sculptures.


Check that out!

Have a go, try using cheese, grapes, blue tak, jellies, what else?
