Mighty Machines Fruity Fun on Snow/ Rainy Days or Birthday Parties January 11, 2013

 As you can tell from our Recycled Cardboard Mighty Machines post we had a Mighty Machines Birthday party for my little guy.   This was one of the activities that I came up with to do…….the kids made their own Mighty Machines out of fruit.  This would also be a great snow or rainy day activity to do with the kids.  They had so much fun being creative  and using their imagination.

To start this I got together a variety of fruit,  marshmallows, peanut butter (to use like glue), toothpicks (for the older kids to use to put their Mighty Machines together with) and plates for them to display their masterpieces on.

 

        Here is one of the amazing Mighty Machines they created:

  And another one with a cool grape driving it:

They had a great time with these and one of the best parts is getting to eat them after you make them…..YUUUUUUUUUUUMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYYYYY!

    My son loves this show, what a great idea. I think I’m going to use it on a rainy day, on second thought maybe just on a regular day…Have a Mighty Machines day…I think I’m going to do that today. Thanks for the idea! Off to buy ingredients.

      That is a great idea for a Mighty Machines Day! My boys love them too and had so much fun with this. All of their friends at the birthday party had a blast coming up with different ways to make the different machines and cars.
