Candy Geometry

Math is always fun but sometimes it can be extra fun! My math group and I built – well, imaginative shapes with toothpics and marshmellows. Then we ate the candy.


I searched high and low and I’m pretty much convinced there’s no such thing as vegan marshmellows! Also vegan candy – somewhat expensive and tastes nothing like the real deal and doesn’t quite work on structural designs, but I really wanted everyone to have an opportunity to participate without having to touch gelatin candy if they didn’t want to.. (I’ve done these with dried peas too (soaked in water overnight) but peas aren’t candy).
