Pasta Towers

One 88 cent box of spaghetti, One $1.49 bag of mini-marshmallows.  Twelve kids.  Two hours of after school fun!  These children seriously could not get enough of this activity.

The structures were a little "touch and go" getting started as the marshmallows were soft and unstable.

But once they got going we noticed the marshmallows firmed up a bit and building proceeded more quickly.

Note to self...let the marshmallows sit out for a couple hours before building to harden.

Have fun!


  1. What a great activity! Its fun to see their creativity I just might use this idea for a minute to win it game.

  2. well you can if you like...but be advised...they won't want to stop.

  3. I can imagine they don't want to stop. By the end of the activity is your supply of marshmallows still complete ;-) If I was a student I might have a bite or two ;-)
