Apple Toothpick Tower Challenge!

Apple Toothpick Tower Challenge!
Apple Toothpick Tower Challenge!


One of our favorite things to do with marshmallows is to build towers, but as my sugar-free child has started to get more involved in our activities, I haven't been pulling out marshmallows nearly as often. The other day, I looked at our apple pile and I realized something: apples could create a whole new challenge!

It turned out to be the best edible engineering activity ever! Our kiddos loved poking the apples with the toothpicks and creating their own towers even more!



To set up your own Apple Toothpick Tower Challenge, you need these


Simple Supplies:


* Apples

* Toothpicks

* Knife

* Paper Plates (optional)


Easy How To:


1. To prepare, cut the apples in half and flip them upside down. This makes it really easy to slice the apples into relatively flat pieces and cut them into smaller "building blocks."



2. Give your children a pile of apples and toothpicks, and let them get busy creating!


















This year I'm joining a fantastic team of bloggers to share activities that are appropriate for 2nd graders! Once a week, this team will bring you fun, interactive, hands-on activities and printables that are perfect for this age group! Mine will also all be easy to adapt for kiddos from PreK - 3rd grade, since those are the ages I work with! This week the team is bringing you loads of "Apple" ideas! Check them out:
