Building with Sweets


This week the children decided they wanted to build with food!

We decided to use sweets of all different shapes to carry on our shape work.

First we chose the sweets we wanted to build with and used icing to stick them together.


We learnt that some shapes were better than others for building.

The flying saucers kept getting squashed!

The bonbons were too round and rolled away!


The milk bottles and jelly beans were a bit better if we laid them down but the walls weren’t very strong.


The fudge and toffee were nice flat shapes (like bricks) and made strong walls.


We had lots of fun building with sweets.

The children talked about the shapes they used and could say which shapes were better.
