Yes, you can do geometry with food. Remember your shapes? Didn’t you just hate proofs in high school math? Or was that just me. None of that here. Let’s talk shapes . . .
* Soft, squishy food like raisins, craisins, marshmallows, or fruit snacks
Two-dimensional shapes are fun to make with toothpicks and your food of choice – I like raisins but my kids don’t. Use whatever they’ll eat later.
Try squares and triangles first. Then, eat and try for more. Maybe build a house with a square and a triangle roof. Can you make a duck? How about a train?
Three dimensional shapes are a bit more challenging. Think Egypt and pyramids . . . isn’t that a square bottom plus triangle sides? How about a triangular prism? (Top and bottom triangles, sides are rectangles.)
