Building Bridges

Bridge engineering is an exact science. Introduce your child to this concept with this bridge-building craft.


  • Mini marshmallows
  • Toothpicks


Look at age-appropriate books on bridges and bridge building. This will help you get a rough idea as to the design of your bridge. Then let your child build a bridge using the toothpicks and marshmallows (helping when you need to).

The toothpicks are to be stuck into the marshmallows to make a bridge structure; the marshmallows join the toothpicks. Several toothpicks can be stuck into one marshmallow, too. Help your child solve problems he or she encounters with the design, and take the opportunity to explain why certain designs don’t work.
