Sugar Cube Pyramid

I’m so glad this one is behind us. It seemed sooo simple at the outset. It was fun, but it was messy and it took us over an hour. And it took 385 sugar cubes because the bottom layer is 10×10, the next layer is 9×9, the next is 8×8…until the top layer is 1 cube (100+81+64+49++36+25+16+9+4+1).

We followed the instructions for the sugar cube pyramid at Family Fun.com

We got our few Playmobil Egyptian people to pose around the pyramid.

    Ambitious :) What are you going to do with this sugar pyramid – I don’t suppose it will keep for long?

    Probably see what happens when it gets wet….watch it dissolve.

    Maybe use colored water in a squirt bottle to do that or in a dropper. I saw that as a science project somewhere to observe dissolving.

    Oh, and yeah, it was crazy to do as a nighttime project. The girls didn’t get to bed until 10 pm tonight. But we are on spring break so it’s not so bad.
