Architect Lesson for Preschoolers

Then, the kids made blueprints. The kids used white paint, cardboard (the edges), and small sponge squares to "print" on blue paper.

My little marine architect prodigy.
Finally, here is my daughter building a structure from large marshmallows, mini marshmallows, whole cocktail straws, and cocktail straw pieces.
