Sugar Cube Shapes

ages 3-6


Sugar cubes, glue or frosting, heavy cardboard, pencil or maker (optional), spatula or plastic knife for spreading glue/frosting (optional), food coloring or acrylic paint (optional)

Activity Detail

Build a castle, a house, or a boat using sugar cubes! Just let your child's imagination run wild with this activity. Glue (or use frosting) to adhere the sugar cubes onto heavy cardboard in any shape/layout/design of your choice. You can make 3 dimensional letters and shapes! It may be easiest to draw the outline of the shape you are going to make directly onto the cardboard and "fill" it in with the sugar cubes. Add color to your project by using food coloring or paint. Just remember that food coloring can stain clothes and skin, so don't use food coloring with this activity before your family photo session!

May be too complicated for some children or maybe frustrating?
