Pea and Toothpick Building

Materials: Round toothpicks, dried peas

Instructions: The peas must be prepared ahead of time. Pour a package of dried peas into a large bowl of water, making sure the water completely covers the peas. Let the peas soak overnight. Using round toothpicks, father and child stick them into the peas in their own creative design. The smaller peas hold best. The peas will dry out and shrink, holding construction together.
