Elastoboy was assigned a project that required him to make a model of a cell. We thought it might be fun to do something a bit different.
We orginally were going to go with a Jello Cell but Elastoboy LOVES Pie, and begged to do a pie version instead. After some thought we made a lemon pudding pie base and used candy to add the parts of the cell.
Step 1: Mix up instant pudding – We used a version that formed into a jelly sort of thing once cooled so it would hold it’s shape once Elastoboy put in the candy.
Step 2: Use a diagram (that Elastoboy had already made a couple of days earlier) to show where the different candy pieces should go and what types to use for each cell part. Place the candy on the pie.
Step 3: Place in the fridge and let set for a few hours.
Step 4: Place labels for each of the pieces on toothpicks, card stock, straws, whatever, so that they stick up and name each part.
Wah-La – the finished project. It actually sat in the fridge overnight and dried out a bit because we couldn’t easily cover it due to the lables. That is what caused the cracks. He still was pretty proud of it anyway=)
