“Don’t play with your food” my grandma used to tell me ….and yet….
Some time ago we had fun with colored pasta, but this time we took playing with food to a different level…a 3D one. So we started building with toothpicks.
Fruits with harder consistency like apples, pears ( if not too soft) are perfect. Grapes are also ok, but depending on the construction, they might not be strong enough to hold the weight.
We experienced with different fruit shapes and designs….
Elena ( 3 years at the time) was our “quality control”. Testing the endurance ……
…. and testing the quality .
All I can say is that building with toothpicks kept them busy for a long time!
We practiced our fine motoric, built imaginary structures and had lots of fun!
The best part of this is that once you’re done building, all the creations are eatable. Yummy, healthy and fun! What more can one desire?
We’ll definetly do this again!
