Marshmallow igloo

Make a fun craft project and use your maths to find out about structures with this quick and easy marshmallow igloo.

Igloos are built out of blocks of ice or snow by Inuit people living in the Arctic regions of Canada and Greenland. They were used as temporary shelters when people were hunting.

No need to worry, we won’t be expecting you to go into the Arctic and carve blocks of ice, this one is going to be made out of marshmallows – yum! You'll only need a few simple items to make this project, and it can be an edible experiment too. The magic of maths is hands-on fun this Christmas!

Download our free activity sheet below to get creative.

Oh ho ho, and please do share your homemade igloos with us @IETeducation #SantaLovesSTEM
