A tasty building project

In May we were invited to a friend’s birthday party, his theme- Architecture! It was a completely fun and imaginative party including giant cardboard building projects and this tasty take home gift, gumdrop domes!


Bayus was surprisingly capable of making his domes after a small amount of instruction. He seemed the most interested in the details of his domes and hypothesizing what would make his the strongest.  We had a great time testing the strength of our domes to hold library books (after letting the gumdrops dry out over night) and now the kids are begging for gumdrops in bulk so they can make bridges and other structures!  Here’s a link that is similar to the instructions we received from the party
