Halloween STEM Sculpture Activity for Kids

Aldi's sell these fun bags of Halloween Shapes (pumpkins and ghosts). Encourage kids to build a sculpture using regular mini marshmallows and these other holiday shapes. Have them problem solve how they can use these shapes that are different sizes on different ways and how they make have to change their design (especially if they have done this project with only mini marshmallows)/

I had bagged up the marshmallows in individual bags for each of the kids in my daughters classroom. We did this project 2 years ago and I just now got around to sharing it. :( Sorry I don't have sculptures to show you, but it was really fun when they had to try to figure out how to work with what they had and with the odd shapes. Makes them think!
