Spot Challenge: Make A Toothpick Star

Materials:  Toothpicks, water dropper/straw, water

Without touching the toothpicks you must use the water dropper or straw, to turn the broken toothpicks into a star with water!

Parent Prep:

  • Set up the toothpicks in the shape shown in the first picture.
  • The shape consists of 5 tooth picks.
  • You must bend the tooth picks in the middle but do not break them!
  • Then all 5 toothpicks must touch in the middle where they were bent, make sure they don’t overlap each other

 

*Hint* The trick is to put drops of water in the middle of the shape and watch it form to a star!
