Chick Pea Structures

We soaked dried chick peas overnight in water to make them soft.

Then we invited children to use toothpicks with the chick peas to create interesting three-dimensional structures.

It was tricky to get the toothpick into the chick pea - but great fine motor practice and hand/eye control.

While we were working we had a great conversation about the differences between 2D and 3D shapes!
