Building Bridges

What do you get when you mix a 2 year old, toothpicks and a handful of marshmallows??

Bridges of course!!

This morning while watching Curious George we learned that we can make bridges from marshmallows and toothpicks. After the show Abigail wanted to try and do it herself. So a quick trip to the supermarket for a few needed supplies (marshmallows and toothpicks) and we were ready to begin construction.

The First one is always the hardest

Showing off all her hard work

Connecting Squares!

The beginning of a bridge

Much Longer...time to start the rails

Triangles are harder then Squares!

Two Triangles...can't stop me now!

Almost Done...Check out her concentration face

The final product...
