Spaghetti & Marshmallows

We had lots of fun making 3d shapes with spaghetti and marshmallows!

Jade: “Me, Abass & Ian we were making a pyramid out of marshmallows and spaghetti. It was the best because it was fun.”

Yousif: “Me, Connor & Alfarabi we tried to make a tent out of marshmellows and spaghetti sticks. We tried to stand the tent up and it was fun.”

Gow: “I liked doing marshmallows. We tried to make a shape. We make it with marshmallows and sticks. I liked it.”

Tevi: “It was difficult to get it to stand up on its own but we tried to lose lots of spaghetti and marshmallows and then it stood up. We couldnt stand up a square but then we broke it up and made it a pyramid.”

Broadie: We didnt make the biggest so we made the longest. We used heaps of spaghetti and marshmallows. We done rectangles and pyramids and we made a walkway.”

Kofi: “We were making a double cube it was a little challenging and then near the end when there was 2 minutes left we made it a different shape and it was joined up together.”

Nyachuot: “The block that we were making was hard and we were struggling and we couldnt make it stand by itself. But then when we did it as a pyramid it was able to stand by itself. we werent struggling anymore and it was really good. It felt groovy.”

Jasmine: ” Tevi and Yanni and me we were doing a marshmallow and spaghetti challenge. We tried to make a cube stand up by itself but then we tried to make a different shape. It was really fun it was like a triangle but 3D.”

Connor: “Me, Yousif & Alfarabi we didnt know we could make it because we thought it would be hard but it was easy and we didnt give up and we liked it.”
