Since learning about 3D shapes at school my 6 yr old was keen to have a go building his own 3D shapes. This simple STEM activity is very cheap and easy to set up, all you need are some paper straws and pipe cleaners.
Cut up the pipe cleaners into 4cm lengths, these will become the corners for your shapes and are used to join the straws together. We cut our paper straws into 3 different lengths; 5cm, 7cm and 10cm. Now begin building your shapes.
