Both the boys love to build things, and we are always on the lookout for new building materials. Egypt, with its pyramids, provided a great excuse to find as many different ways of constructing pyramids as we could. We talked about how to make a pyramid and I showed my pre-schooler – he very quickly got the hang of it. We then built pyramids out of sugar cubes and wooden blocks. He spent ages playing with the sugar cubes, trying out lots of designs. A great STEM challenge!
