Kuya Angelo has been acting up lately. He’s always looking and begging daddy A to come home early. But the traffic and the travel time takes him approximately 2hrs of driving from his workplace to our house. To divert his attention, I set up an invitation that I know he cannot resist.
Marshmallows + toothpicks = an afternoon of engineering fun! Previously, we did the 2 and 3 dimensional shapes using clay and toothpicks. This time I thought building marshmallows structures was a deliciously entertaining way of reinforcing his learning at home.
Since this our first time to try this engineering activity, our excitement turned into frustration.Using marshmallows in building a tower is unstable, wobbly and always collapsed.
We almost give up but this activity not only tested our patience but also our determination to finish the task. Talking about resilience huh!
So I dropped the idea of creating a tower but instead, I keep the activity open ended and let him to be as creative as he wanted to be.
Have an inspiring, positive homeschooling ahead! Stay blessed!
