building the Chrysler Building--a smaller version
« on: December 30, 2009, 10:54:17 AM »
My daughter ( she's 11 ) needs to build a replica of the Chrysler Building for a school project, and she is looking for ideas re: construction materials, etc. The only parameters are that it fit on a standard school desk top and be constructed mostly by the student. ( I'm sure a little parental help would be OK.)  We are confident the creative minds of SP will be helpful!

The livestock (show) industry is a tough one- if you've never had anything worth a damn you might as well go on the internet and rundown everybody you can.

She  has to create this?



You'll have to post some pictures when she's done.

Here it is - 15 bags of marshmallows, 90 cups of Rice Krispies, 7 1/2 sticks of margarine, 4 pounds of almond bark, and 3 pounds of powdered sugar later!

Are you going to eat it? If so don't eat all at once.
