Sugar cubes aren't just good for tea and coffee; kids can use them to construct an igloo, ice castle, tower, or anything they can imagine. Forget Legos; on winter days that have you cooped up inside, keep little hands busy building a winter wonderland. In just three steps they can be building away. And if too many sugar cubes get eaten, just consider it fuel for imagination.
Wooden Craft Stick
1) Mix a little water and confectioners sugar together until it forms a paste.
2) Cover the paper plate in the sugar paste, and begin building the first layer of the structure. If you are building an igloo, start with a circular base.
3) Spread a layer of sugar paste over the cubes using the craft stick, and add the next layer of sugar cubes. Repeat to build your masterpiece.
