Maggie brought home a baggie with marshmallow/toothpick creations. They were 3D shapes her class has been studying at school. A few didn’t travel so well on the bus, so we agreed that after dinner we would recreate them with our own supplies.
(We rarely have mini marshmallows on hand, but I have been eating these like crazy for a week, so I happened to have them in stock.)
(OK, just googled to fact check before making a statement about something I know little about – and I think, I mean, there is a chance, well, I think that I have duped by a six-year-old. A cube has right angles. Maggie couldn’t remember the name for a slanted cube without right angles. I googled and came up with “hexagon” which she jumped at and told me “That’s it!” Except now I’m not so sure. The hexagons I see are flat, six-sided shapes, not a 3D slanted cube.)
